WLC COVID-19 Update 7

Dear WLC Family,

We are heartbroken about pausing our traditional camp program this summer and we miss our WLC family!
So here's what we are thinking...

  • We are looking into having families come to camp to use the facilities this summer.
    • Families would use the facilities similar to a campground and would assume the responsibility for their own entertainment, health and safety.
    • Families would each be assigned their own cabin which includes 4 bunk beds and 2 single beds, all with camp mattresses. Families would also be assigned a toilet, shower and sink in the male wayside and in the female wayside. Families would be responsible for keeping these areas cleaned and sanitized.
    • We would provide outdoor BBQ grills and campfire sites for families to cook their own food.
    • We would limit the number of families on site to 6 at any one given time.
    • We ask that families stay for 2 or more nights.
    • This would be donation based use with no cost associated
    • If you are interested please click this link to fill out a quick survey.
    • Once we open registration for this, it will be a first come first serve basis 
  • In an effort to make sure the boys stay connected even when they're not on site, we recently sent an email to our 2019 and 2020 families asking for camper contact information in order to create a Camper Directory. If you have not yet filled out this information please click this link to do so.
  • We'd like to introduce our VIRTUAL BROG Competition!
    • In the coming weeks, BROG Team Captains will be organizing their first team Zoom calls - This is for staff and campers who have a BROG team assignment from their time at camp.
    • Each week we will send out a list of 2-5 challenges, via email, Facebook and Instagram, that the boys will have to complete and submit evidence of.
    • There will be points assigned to each challenge and the teams will also gain points for every submission. 
    • Challenges include such things as building and lighting a fire, a fishing derby, creating a WLC TikTok video and many others. Some of the challenges will be individual while others will requires the boys to contact their other team members. If you or your son has any suggestions for challenges, please email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

In other news, 2000s Alumn, Graham Pollard, has taken on the massive feat of crossing the country via a Segway Scooter in order to raise funds for WLC. He will ride at a maximum speed of 18.6 MPH over 4000 miles. He credits his ambition and confidence to his time spent at William Lawrence Camp. To learn more about Graham and his cross country trip and to support his effort please visit the GoFundMe Page by clicking this link. 

We are so grateful for those that have come up to give a us hand on the Knoll. Thank you to Jon Ceru, Ryan Pitcarin, Kevin O'Neil, Thomas Cleary and his wonderful girlfriend, Rebecca, John Webster and Ross Fidler for all your hard work!
