8-10 year olds are part of the Junior Unit and live in a cabin with limited electricity and a bathroom. They share their cabin with four to five other girls and at least one staff member and a counselor-in-training. 11-13 year olds are part of the Mid unit and live with 3-4 other girls their age with one counselor and a counselor-in-training. Younger Mids live in cabins with electricity and older Mids live in platform tents. Nearby is a bathhouse (known as a WOG at Fleur de Lis) with electricity, hot showers, and flushing toilets. Quickly these tents and cabins become a cozy home to campers. All Senior campers live in platform tents.
We have over 20 different activities for you to try at Fleur de Lis Camp! To see the full list, click here. You get to choose your activities and a schedule and a schedule is designed for you based on your choices - the only required activity is swimming in beautiful Laurel Lake!
Junior campers take a day trip off camp with an outdoor focus. Mids, in small groups, do a one-night overnight pitching tents and have a local adventure the next day from climbing Mt. Monadnock to hiking the Cheshire County Rail Trails. Senior campers travel to a brother camp once a session for a social and rifle competition and in early July, they take a high adventure trip to surf along the NH coast or do high ropes.
Our campers love our food! We have a special cooking team that creates the best meals. We also have a pasta bar during lunch, a salad bar at lunch and supper, and plenty of options for breakfast, between pancakes, cereal, oatmeal, granola, yogurt, and more! We also have vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free options.
When you arrive at camp for the first day, you get to try out some of the activities. Campers pick five activities in which to participate. A schedule is created based on a 1-5 choice with your top pick being the activity you have most often. First time campers "try" each activity before signing up. Campers staying four weeks or longer may adjust their activities and sign up for new activities at the midpoint of their stay.
No, you can't have your phone. However, music is a big part of camp life and campers are allowed to bring MP3 players with all video removed. Older campers may listen to their MP3 players during quiet times and all campers may use them for music, talent, and skit events. Handheld games and cell phones are prohibited. Campers may bring cameras to camp.
Our campers come from all over the United States - even though most of them are from the East Coast and Boston area. But we do have campers from all over the world, too, including Spain, Venezuela, and France!
