Kearns Library

"If it wasn’t for the summer reading program at camp, I would never have finished high school, gone to college and become the educator that I am today." - BRC alumnus

A cottage filled with books, magazines, games, and comfy chairs - this is the Allen Kearns Library at Birch Rock. Reading has always been emphasized at our camp, and this cozy cabin is a popular destination for boys to browse the shelves or play a game of chess. Campers look forward to quiet time in the middle of their active days, and they read for pleasure here. Our library and culture of reading make Birch Rock stand out among camps in Maine.

Tutoring is offered at Birch Rock to help campers make progress in areas of individual difficulty. This can be a wonderful opportunity to boost reading levels, refine writing skills, or tackle math problems. English as a second language is also offered to our international campers.

One-on-one sessions and small group instruction are available at an additional fee by Pamela Stock, our librarian. Pam is a teacher with a wealth of experience. She is certified as a reading specialist in elementary education, and in special education K-12. For more on Pam, please see our Staff Profiles. Please contact Pam directly at 207-461-5781 (between 5 - 8 PM EST) or email her at ptsteach@gmail.com to design a program for your camper.
