Established in 1903, Mowglis is a non-profit residential camp located in Hebron, New Hampshire and offers a traditional summer camping experience for boys ages 7 to 15. Attending camp Mowglis helps boys develop confidence, independence, personal resources, and a sense of responsibility toward others and the environment, all while having fun and making lifelong friends.
Mission Statement The Mowglis mission is to guide boys on the journey to manhood by providing a summertime overnight ‘school of the open’ under the guidance and care of experienced staff members. Mowglis offers a rite of passage, giving boys the opportunity to become young men, learning leadership, responsibility, integrity, their role in the community, and respect for nature.
The Mowglis Program Mowglis offers a diverse program allowing campers to experience a wide variety of traditional outdoor activities in a safe and structured setting. Day and overnight hiking trips in the White Mountains give the boys a chance to appreciate the outdoors, while a camp-wide emphasis on crew provides the opportunity to learn a uniquely cooperative sport that rewards team effort over individual skill.
The Legend of The Jungle Book and our Kipling Connection 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 the camp and maintained an active interest in the undertaking so influenced by his inspiring stories.
