Since 1895, Pasquaney has pursued the goal set by its founder, Edward Simpson Wilson: “To provide a healthful and natural life in the woods, a life which will make boys strong, confident, … self-reliant and efficient, able to do and think for others as well as themselves.” We pursue this goal beneath towering white pines, on a mountainside above Newfound Lake, one of the clearest lakes in the United States.

Pasquaney encourages boys to appreciate the beauty of New Hampshire’s lakes and White Mountains; to understand the forbearance and self-control necessary in the give-and-take of group living; to grasp the chance, at all levels of competence, to be a participant rather than a spectator; and to learn the satisfaction of contributing to a community. In the words of a recent counsellor, Pasquaney takes boys seriously.

The busy daily program builds substantial skills both in activities and in dealing with others. This growth gives a boy confidence in himself and in his ability to learn and to teach. It also gives him pride in completing long-term projects, be they finishing a chest in the shop, performing a play, or rowing in a crew race.

Campers and counsellors often mention the difficulty of explaining Pasquaney to family and friends. It must be experienced to be understood. A visit before coming as a camper or attending a local gathering helps a boy and his family to get a sense of our community.
