Year after year, families tell us they choose Moosilauke over other camps for the following reasons:
The rave reviews we get from parents—and The Boston Globe.
To read a feature article on Moosilauke that was on the front page of the Metro Section of The Boston Globe click here. On CampRatingz, glowing parent reviews have made Moosilauke the 4th highest rated camp out of 8,400 residential in the U.S. Click here to read over 75 reviews. We also were recently chosen as one of the six best summer camps by Summer Camp Hub.
Our unique philosophy, program and culture.
To learn about how our philosophy on what boys need to become their best selves influences everything from our daily schedule to our tripping and athletic programs, and how we have created what we believe is the most positive peer culture of any camp in the US, click here.
Our wealth of experience working with boys.
In the feature article on the Camp, The Boston Globe wrote that our directors Bill and Sabina have “earned unofficial doctorates in boyhood.” After more than 30 years running Moosilauke and working in education, Bill and Sabina could not agree more! When they are not at Moosilauke, Bill and Sabina live at The Thacher School in Ojai, CA. Bill has been the Director of Enrollment and Planning for 18 years. Sabina, a lifelong educator at the Nightingale-Bamford School, Northfield-Mt. Hermon School, and The Thacher School, is engaged with Moosilauke year-round.
We will know your child and closely monitor his experience.
At most camps, especially large ones, the directors cannot have a sense of how your child is doing. Instead, your child’s welfare is left in the hands of college age counselors. Moosilauke’s size, combined with Bill and Sabina’s passion for the work, ensures that they will know your child and actively monitor his summer. When it is time for a progress report call home (for all new campers after the first week of the 4-1/2 week session), Bill and Sabina will personally update you on your child’s experience.
