Camp Hale, located on Squam Lake in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, has been providing residential camping experience to approximately 180 young men and women every summer since 1900. Traditionally an all-boys camp, Camp Hale established an all-girls session in 2012 to provide inner-city girls with the chance to experience the beauty and unique opportunities that Camp Hale has to offer. The basic camping program serves 6 to 14 year old youth using the natural setting of the lake and mountains to provide an alternative environment away from the stresses of urban living, in which the youth have an opportunity for development and realization of personal potential within the framework of an enriching experience. These experiences are broken into three parts of the day representing individual achievement, peer group interaction, and community responsibility. The Leaders in Training program targets youth between the ages of 14 to 16 year olds, generally former campers, as potential counselors and prepares them through work, special training sessions, and mentor-supervised leadership experiences.
