About Us

Camp Mowglis is a non-profit residential camp located in Hebron, NH. Mowglis offers a traditional back-to-basics summer camping experience for about 100 boys ages 7 to 17, helping them develop confidence, independence, personal resources, and a sense of responsibility toward others and the environment, all while having fun and making lifelong friends. Campers come from all over the world, representing as many as 20 states and 10 countries each year.

Established in 1903, Mowglis is situated in the heart of New England on Newfound Lake, just south of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The property includes 125 acres of pine woods and open space as well as an extensive shoreline.

At Camp Mowglis, boys unplug from technology. They laugh, learn, and play on the beautiful lakes,mountains, and rivers of New Hampshire. Mowglis offers a diverse program allowing boys to experience a wide variety of activities, from Axemanship to Photography, Windsurfing to Woodworking. They go hiking at least once a week and eat freshly prepared meals of organic and farm-raised food.

At Camp Mowglis, boys can be boys, while at the same time learning how to be good men.

With the permission of author Rudyard Kipling, the camp’s founder borrowed names from his Jungle Books, and to this day, Toomai, Baloo, Akela, and other names are used throughout the Mowglis program. During his life, Kipling kept in contact with Mowglis and maintained an active interest in the undertaking so influenced by his inspiring stories.
