Summer Youth Programs at Squam Lake!

Imagine a place where children can connect with nature and develop their interest in the outdoors! Imagine a place where discovery and exploration are encouraged! Imagine a place where children gain comfort and confidence in the natural world. The place where this happens is called SQUAM and the programs that provide all of this are the Junior Squam Lakes Association (JSLA) and our Community Youth Sailing Program (CYSP).

What is summer camp like at SLA? JSLA, in operation since 1955, is a weekly day camp program that offers 1-2 overnights per week. This program provides youth in grades 3-9 with an opportunity to learn about the natural environment around Squam with a strong recreational component that includes canoeing, kayaking, hiking and camping. The Community Youth Sailing Program is an instructional half-day program that guides youth ages 8-18 through the basics of Sailing and beyond including competitive boat handling tactics, sail trim skills and handling of the spinnaker. This program is taught by a US Sailing certified instructor.

We have added some new program content this year and we are very excited about it! Join us as we adventure out with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department for some exciting fish research; take a fresh look at some new trail destinations; and try pristine camping in new locations all across the Squam Watershed! The list doesn’t end there – make sure you check out our daily camp schedule on our website to what we have in store for each day!

Camp starts Monday, June 23! This year we are offing an Early Season Special – sign up for the first week of camp at a discounted price! This is a great opportunity to try us out – surely you will not be disappointed! We hope to see many of our local watershed school friends join us and enjoy all that Squam has to offer! Also new for this year – become a member at the Family Level of $100 and receive 10% off your summer camp total. Not only is this a great opportunity to save but you can also feel good about supporting the important conservation work of the SLA! Check out our website for more detailed information or to register for camp. Not sure if this is the right fit for your children? Don’t hesitate to contact Jenne Walker, Director of Education, for more information.
