Since 1955, the Squam Lakes Association's (SLA) summer youth programs have introduced young people to the unique resources in the Squam Lakes region and beyond. Through paddling, hiking, swimming and environmental education campers develop a strong sense of self, community and place. Our Junior Squam Lakes Association (JSLA) provides healthy outdoor recreational activities designed to stimulate inquisitive minds, develop life-long friendships, and create lasting memories. The SLA welcomes ALL campers regardless of sex, race, color, religion, national heritage, physical or mental handicaps, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression who are able to participate in normal daily activities. Our summer youth programs are open to everyone and membership in the SLA is not required. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
JSLA is more than just a summer camp! We take the best of the Squam Watershed and the White Mountains to provide an exciting Adventure Ecology experience! JSLA has gained a reputation for excellence in creating awareness and respect for the environment, outdoor recreation skills, self-confidence, cooperation and leadership in every child and young adult that comes through our program. Our goal is to help instill a strong conservation ethic and stewardship in all youth so that each generation may have the same opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors that we have!
