Mission Statement

Our mission statement is the driving force behind our philosophy and everything we do at camp. We think about it as we prepare for camp and try to incorporate it's ideals into every activity we teach throughout the summer. It is as follows:

Through a fun, balanced program, in a camp
family atmosphere with positive role models,
William Lawrence Camp encourages the
intellectual, social, emotional, and physical
development of the whole boy in a caring,
nurturing, spirited,
challenging, yet safe environment.
While allowing a kid to be a kid, the camp seeks to
enhance positive values and skill development
leading to a productive and responsible adulthood.

The camp experience builds character and
fellowship, provides new and different experiences,
improves group living skills, provides an
opportunity to meet people from different
backgrounds and countries, and fosters an
appreciation of nature and the environment. Each
camper is encouraged to increase self esteem,
realize his potential, share and develop his
personality, develop lasting friendships, and
become a part of the camp family, which many
consider a second home.
