Our purpose is to make a boy's summer camping experience safe, fun, memorable, and a valuable factor in his complete development. We believe we can do this by:

- Providing campers with challenging experiences, adventure and on-going social interaction in a safe camp community to create independence, friendship and skills. Our goal is to promote self-confidence and develop character.

- Being responsible to the parents for the safety, physical and emotional development and welfare of their sons. We'll do this by offering qualified staff, ensuring safe facilities and regular communication with parents.

- Providing staff that will play an active role in camp administration, understanding their responsibility to ensure the maximum experience for campers and demonstrating respect for campers, parents and other staff members. As part of the administration, counselors should take initiative beyond assigned areas, be a positive role model and adhere to the tenets of the True Gentleman.

- Respecting Mother Nature: By being thoughtful of the forest and people who use the outdoors. By practicing minimum-impact camping principles.

- Projecting an image of respect, courtesy and goodwill to the community outside of camp.
