School of the Open
Since its inception in 1903 as the “School of the Open,” Mowglis’ mission has been to use a fun, challenging, and well-managed summer camp experience to create strong, independent, and self-confident young men.
Mowglis’ traditions and orderly routines have been developed and proven through the decades and have served generations of campers and alumni. Mowglis provides an outdoor educational experience through numerous activities and experiences designed to be both fun and of lasting value for each boy.
Mowglis is more than just a “sleep-away camp.” Our program has been fine-tuned to provide a lifetime of value to each camper by nurturing his self-confidence, introducing new and unusual activities, adding elements of life-long enjoyment, and forming lasting friendships; all while participating in a fun-filled summer. The lessons learned here provide a sense of independence and an understanding of oneself and the outside world that will last a lifetime.
