Silver Birch Ranch (SBR) would love to have old friends, former workers, past alumni, and new friends at camp with us, however all of us need to remember that camp ultimately is for, and all about, our campers and retreaters. In an effort to provide the best camp experience, in the safest environment possible, SBR has implemented the Visitor Guide. Camp is a very close-knit and relational community. This bond represents the best aspect of the camp/retreat experience and also makes our camp a very secure environment, physically and emotionally. Visitors can negatively impact both of these outcomes. When large numbers of visitors are present during sessions, their presence not only changes the camp "feel," but also represents a very real security challenge. Camp security is essential to the safety of the campers, retreaters, leaders, and staff. It is essential that you read, understand and comply with this guide.
