Important Information

Below are several documents that convey important information about your son's summer here at camp. It is important that you review them carefully prior to attending camp.

Do you have any questions? Not a problem, give our friendly staff a call at our camp office. We are happy to walk you through the process. Just call 603-569-3698.

Camper accommodation is organized into three grade-based units: Juniors are entering 3rd-6th grades; Middlers 7th and 8th; Seniors 9th and 10th. The screened-in cabins generally house 8 campers each, with at least 2 staff members in an attached quarters. Each unit has access to its own washhouse with showers and bathroom facilities.

William Lawrence observes the health and safety standards of the American Camping Association and the State of New Hampshire. All campers and staff are required to have an updated medical history form at the beginning of each season, which is kept on file by our Registered Camp Nurse in the Infirmary. Our camp doctor is always on call, Huggins Hospital is only fifteen minutes away, and 9-1-1 is at camp within minutes of a call, should such need arise. If a camper requires medical attention, his parents will be notified immediately. The safety and health care of the campers is the highest priority at William Lawrence Camp. The staff carefully supervise campers throughout the day, and cabin leaders monitor the personal health and hygiene of their campers.

Campers are encouraged to bring clothing appropriate for the active camp lifestyle, as well as a large trunk to store it in. Campers’ laundry is done every Thursday, and the camp store is open regularly should they desire any camp apparel, or essentials such as shampoo, toothpaste, or batteries.

At meals, campers sit with their cabin mates and leaders to enjoy the perennially delicious food as prepared by our camp chef. The meals are well balanced to include fruits, vegetables, and the carbs and proteins necessary to sustain them in their active lifestyle. Every meal has fruit and vegetarian options and factors in the various food allergies that campers have.

PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT USE GPS!

From Massachusetts, travel north on I-95 to Portsmouth, NH. Take the Spaulding Turnpike toward NH Lakes & Mountains. In Rochester, take the Rte 11 West exit for Lake Winnipesaukee toward Alton. At the Alton traffic circle, take Rte 28 north to Wolfeboro. In Wolfeboro, take a sharp right at the Gulf station/Three Sisters Store, staying on Rte 28. After one mile, bear left onto Rte 109A toward Ctr. Tuftonboro. Follow Rte 109A approximately 5 miles to the Tuftonboro General Store on your left. Across from the store, go right onto Federal Corner Road. Proceed straight for 2 miles (the paved road changes to a dirt road) to the camp driveway on your right.

An alternate route is via I-93. Proceed north to Concord, NH. In Concord, take I-393 east, which eventually becomes routes 4, 9 and 202. Take this to the Epsom traffic circle. At the circle, go north on Rte 28. Follow Rte 28 to Wolfeboro and proceed according to the directions above.

To avoid Wolfeboro (which is often gridlocked on weekends in the summertime), take Rt. I-95 via Portsmouth NH onto the Spaulding Turnpike. Instead of getting off at the Rt. 11 exit, continue north on Rt.-16 (the Spaulding Turnpike becomes Rt-16 in Rochester NH). From Rochester, travel approximately 20 miles to Route 109. At the stop light, go left onto Rt. 109. Go approximately 10 miles to the intersection of routes 109 and 28. Go straight across onto North Line Road. Go approximately two miles to the stop sign at Beech Pond Road. Go right onto Beech Pond Road, travel approximately 1.5 miles to intersection with Brown Road (road surface will change to dirt and back to pavement just before intersection). Go left onto Brown Road. Go approximately 1.5 miles to 3 way stop sign at Federal Corner Road. Go right onto Federal Corner Road. Camp is a mile up on the right.

William Lawrence Camp is an independent, not-for-profit organization; our entire focus is on providing an extraordinary experience for your child that will benefit him for years to come. We believe that the best way for boys to learn is through being active, especially while surrounded by natural beauty. Our well-balanced program offers instruction in diverse activities, such as Archery, waterskiing, and Wilderness Trips, that your child would likely not be able to participate in at home. And, as a small camp, we do not experience the bottlenecks at popular activities that larger camps are rife with: if your child is interested in an activity, they will be able to do it. As well, our better than 3-to-1 camper to staff ratio ensures that your child will be well looked after.

All capital improvements at William Lawrence are paid for by donations, which are tax deductible as we are a 501(c)3. This, among other benefits of being a not-for-profit organization, means we can provide higher-quality facilities without passing the cost on in our tuition. When you send your child to William Lawrence Camp, you are not merely providing them entertainment for the summer: you are introducing them to the William Lawrence Camp Family, a supportive community of individuals dedicated to camp and to each other.

William Lawrence is a high-quality, reasonably-priced organization that prepares boys for their futures as men.

At William Lawrence, we consider effective, compassionate leadership to be a cornerstone of our mission: from our senior staff to our Leaders-In-Training, we are perpetually mindful of what it means to be a leader. Our mature, well-trained staff at William Lawrence Camp are dedicated to the safety, well-being, and positive growth of today’s youth. Led by a senior staff with professional experience in family counseling, social work, teaching, and healthcare, we boast a better than 3:1 camper to staff ratio. Our cabin leaders are chosen for their understanding of camp life, maturity, and ability to provide appropriate guidance for the many challenges that boys face today. The cabin leader core consists largely of former campers, who have come up through our Leader in Training program, balanced by a diverse array of foreign staff in order to provide opportunities for campers to develop themselves as international citizens.



To ensure consistency in approach and performance, all of our staff participate in a pre-camp training week, as well as receiving on-going training throughout the summer. Our program staff are certified in their respective areas during off-season seminars: Riflery and Archery instructors are given specific training in range operation, safety procedures, and teaching techniques; Waterfront staff are Red Cross certified lifeguards and swim instructors; trip leaders are lifeguard trained, as well as being certified in Wilderness First Aid and CPR.

Are you looking for a camp for your daughter? Nat Crane, our Executive Director, has over 25 years of experience with camps in and around New Hampshire and would be happy to talk with you about an appropriate camp for your daughter. William Lawrence has a long, rich history with our sister camp, Fleur de Lis Camp in Fitzwilliam NH, so please be sure to check them out. Or perhaps you are looking at other camps for your daughter or a camp close by and would like some feedback. Either way, feel free to contact us online or call us at 603-569-3698 during regular business hours.
