FAQs about Mowglis
What kind of camp is Mowglis?
Mowglis is a traditional camp where boys learn a variety of different outdoor activities. Although we play sports for fun, we are not a sports camp. We offer a broad spectrum of activities (Industries) to allow the boys to find something they excel at, and thus can gain confidence from that experience.
How old do I have to be to be able to go to Mowglis?
Cubs range in age from 7-10 years old, boys in the Pack range in age from 10-15 years old, and Yearlings are high school age boys.
What is it like to live at camp?
The boys will live with other campers their age in an open air dorm. The food is terrific with menus that are made to be kid-friendly but healthy: for example, burgers, mac and cheese, pizza, and tacos. They’ll have the chance to swim every day. We have a campfire circle every night Click here to learn more about what a typical day is like.
Do I get to choose what I want to do?
Yes! We offer 16 different activities, and what they do is their own choice. Click here to see what activities we offer.
Will I go on trips?
Yes! Everyone goes on different types of trips depending on their age and ability. We go hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing and kayaking. It doesn’t matter if they have never done these things before, and we will never ask them to do more than they can handle.
What about uniforms?
The Mowglis uniform includes shorts, tee shirts, polo shirts and a fleece jacket. We will give each boy his uniform on the day he arrives. There is nothing better than not having to think about what you’re going to wear on a given day, and knowing that whatever your son wears, will be just as “cool” as what the other boys are wearing. The uniforms take “clothing stress” out of your son’s vocabulary.
Can I bring TV’s, computers, radios, cell phones, CD players and video games?
We do not allow electronics at Mowglis because we believe they distract the boys from our outdoor-oriented program. Taking a break from technology is a real learning experience! Don’t worry … after the first few days no one misses them, and they will all be waiting when they get home!
What if I get homesick?
It is normal for boys to miss their family and friends, but they will probably be so busy that this feeling will pass quickly. If they do get homesick, we’ll make sure that they have someone to talk with. Boys can receive mail daily; there are several visiting weekends for parents and the summer goes by really fast.
Where is Mowglis?
Mowglis is located in Hebron, N.H., on the shores of Newfound Lake. Newfound is one of the cleanest lakes in the United States. It is spring fed and it refreshes itself two times annually.
