Order your gear early!

Make sure your family is prepared for the summer by ordering your Lochearn gear early! You can view the packing list and order from the Lochearn Webstore on our website. Order before May 1 to avoid delays.

Here are some other helpful hints for ordering:

  • Trunks and duffels are both great for camp, but they must be 15″ in height or less to fit under the beds.

Directors’ Message

Dear Camp Families,

We hope this letter finds you and yours celebrating a joyful and peaceful New Year! As we look forward to our upcoming days at Lochearn in the summer of 2016, we want to take this time to reflect on 2015.

Stacie was delighted to be named Teacher of the Year at her middle school in the fall. Camp allows us to grow as individuals and leaders. The skills that are gained at summer camp are directly felt in our lives in the biggest and smallest of ways. Through lessons and accomplishments garnered while on the shores of Lake Fairlee, Camp continues to shape our future in so many positive aspects.

The fall and winter have been busy, as we have been meeting with new families who are looking forward to joining Lochearn. Tony has made trips to New York City, Boston, and New Jersey. We were very thankful to enjoy some real quality family time at Lochearn during the week of Thanksgiving.

We have loved receiving holiday cards from our campers and their families. Thank you for updating us on your endeavors and successes during the school year. We’re so glad to have the most amazing campers at Lochearn. We can’t wait to see you at camp!

Happy New Year!

Tony & Stacie - Directors at Camp Lochearn
