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.
