Camp Belknap is a non-profit traditional overnight summer camp for boys age 8-16 near Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Established in 1903, back in the days of ice houses and horse-drawn carriages, Camp Belknap today flourishes on the shore of New Hampshire’s majestic Lake Winnipesaukee, not only because the concept of summer camp remains evergreen, but because its founders and succeeding generations of directors and leaders have created and continually improved on something special – a felicitous blend of place, tradition, and purpose. The aim, from early on, was to make good boys better. Camp Belknap prides itself on its home-grown leadership program and its motto of “God first, the other fellow second, and myself last.”
Our remote engagement program will launch on July 6th and run for four weeks.
Beyond Belknap’s camper engagement program seeks to create a spirited and intentional community where Belknappers can remotely experience the life of a Belknap summer. The Belknap leadership will provide opportunities for campers to participate in programming that seeks to cultivate the Belknap Spirit in purposeful and creative ways that are aligned with Camp’s mission and grounded in our four leadership pillars (My Best Self, Back to Basics, Less is More, and Be With the Boys). In doing so, campers will experience meaningful development in mind, body, and spirit while seeking the joy of being alive.
Please consider your most generous support for our Fortitude 2020 Fund.
Due to the current crisis, Belknap is facing a $1.25 million shortfall as tuition accounts for greater than 80% of our annual revenue. Donations to the Fortitude 2020 Fund will mitigate the challenges we face by supporting staff salaries and the work needed just to maintain the Belknap grounds and facilities. A strong show of support means that we will weather this pandemic.
