Camp Wachusett for Boys

Camp Wachusett for Boys

Camp Wachusett for Boys, established in 1903, is a traditional overnight camp located on beautiful Lake Hortonia near Brandon, Vermont. Wachusett provides the perfect setting for boys ages 8-15 to escape the tether of electronic devices and learn to indulge in outdoor activities and face to face socializing. Our motto “Unaliyi,” a Cherokee word meaning “a place of friends,” personifies our community where new and returning campers make strong and lasting friendships.

Boys choose from a selection of activities that promote multiple levels of interaction with peers and the opportunity for personal growth. Campers go home at the end of their stay with newfound or improved skills in activities such as – sailing, water skiing, camping, wood shop, tennis, basketball, horseback riding, archery, riflery, nature and campcraft, first aid, team sports, swimming, canoeing, kayaking – and substantive knowledge and terminology that goes along with the excitement of those accomplishments. Free time is mixed in with clinic offerings that vary and may include lacrosse, pickleball, gaga, Cardio and weight training, letter writing, chess, skit practice, etc.

Cabins are screened with indoor plumbing and house six to eight campers with two counselors. Our counselors are nearly all former campers and have attended Wachusett for many years. Counselors and returning campers have made strong friendships and look at wachusett as a home away from home. We also have an experienced nurse and dining staff to attend to medical and dietary needs and will readily contact parents if there are any issues or concerns.

In addition to offering adventurous overnight camping trips and fun field trips, our program provides flexibility for unique experiences, such as building a cabin and caring for chickens, cows and a vegetable garden where fresh eggs and home grown vegetables are integrated into our dining experience.
