we believe, firmly, that a NH boys summer camp experience should
be one of lasting value to each and every boy. The value
of a New Hampshire boys camp experience may be thought of in terms of the amount
of personal growth that occurs throughout the summer. Camp
strives to create a safe environment in which
a boy can express himself with confidence and then
in that confidence, take risks and try new things. Positive
attitudes, firm friendships, and friendly spirits support
each campers attempt to expand his horizons - physically,
mentally and socially. We believe in individual freedom
of choice. Therefore, we offer
boys the widest possible range of options and allow
them to actively participate in customizing their program.
we focus on those sports and skills which can best be acquired
and enjoyed out of doors. We believe that a boy needs this
outdoor experience for a healthy balance in his life. It
is also our feeling that better understanding will lead
to a more fulfilling enjoyment. So experiences at camp should
be educational, as well as recreational in nature. At camp,
a boy may find satisfaction, as well as shelter, in the
lean-to he created with his own hands. He may not only enjoy
the flavor of a tasty meal, but also the fact that he cooked
it for himself in a fireplace that he actually helped build.
At camp, the possibilities for learning seem endless
and so, therefore, is the potential for enjoyment.
Tohkomeupog, a camper should discover the wonderful reality
of those outdoor adventures many boys find only in books.
He will thrill to the call of the mountain trail and be
awed by the splendor of reaching the highest peak. He will
learn to swim in the sparkling waters of a pristine and
private lake. He will learn to navigate a canoe, and feel
the power of the river rippling beneath him. The trees,
the flowers, the woodland birds, and the animals will reveal
themselves to him and grasp his attention. A whole
new world of interests will open up to him and be
his to enjoy for life.
