When I first came to Mowglis and realized the full extent of what I was being asked to do by starting the fencing program, I must admit I was nervous. I was not an experienced outdoorsman, and fencing is an indoor sport.
Despite the current swell of 90-degree weather here in New York’s Hudson Valley, there are creepings of fall peeking in at the edges of everything. Due to the heat, people have been sticking to the shade or heading to the water to keep cool.
Our Alumni Magazine, the Call recaps the 2015 summer and illustrates how, after being influenced by Kipling’s Jungle Book Stories, Camp Mowglis was founded to give boys the time and space for them to reconnect with nature and to learn what it means to be ethical, well-rounded members of a community.
We live in an ever-growing digital culture that requires us to remain "plugged in" at all hours of the day and night. There is no denying our prevailing attachment to our cell phones, our incessant need to check our social media pages, and our relentless desire to stay tuned in to the popular culture trends of our society.
Mowglis is filled with vibrant people, traditions, and learning opportunities: We invite you to tune in and participate. If you have personal experiences, stories, memories, or thoughts, we want to hear them. I look forward to bringing you deeper into the Mowglis community and sharing the widespread passion for this special place!
