2015 Five Year Club Inductees
To celebrate our campers who have been coming to Lochearn for five years or more, the Five-Year Club took a trip to Quechee Gorge! The day was spent hiking and playing in the Gorge’s refreshing waters. Congratulations to our 2015 Five-Year Club inductees!

Activity, LC and Spirit Awards
Additionally we would like to congratulate all Activity, LC and Spirit Cup award winners on their achievements this summer!

Congratulations Green Team!
Blue & GreenThe Blue and Green Teams both did an amazing job putting their all into the Blue-Green Competitions during the summer of 2015. Blue and Green has been a Lochearn tradition since 1916. When looking back at the last 99 years, both teams have won almost exactly the same number of times.

The magic of Lochearn keeps the Blue-Green competitions exciting, but friendly, summer after summer. This year we celebrated the new “Marble Pull” Cup. First-year campers pull a blue or green marble from this cup, which then determines their color for the rest of their years at Lochearn, and beyond.

No matter what happens in the competition, our campers always reunite as kind and caring Lassies!

Directors’ Message

Dear Camp Families,

As the sun sets on Summer Camp 2015, Lochearn’s 99th year, we’d like to take a moment to thank our campers, parents, and staff. Thank you for your continued support and for another wonderful summer. Cheers of “How do you feel?” still resonate through our heads as we reflect on our time on Lake Fairlee together.

Sunday night campfires continued to be a time when important life lessons and personal triumphs filled our hearts and minds with a “deeper understanding of the beauty about us.” Alumnae delighted us with their visits and made these moments even more complete as they shared their favorite memories from the decades of Lady Lochearn. Our tennis and riding programs topped the list in terms of quality instruction. “We are jogging” became a favorite way to greet each other around camp. The arts continued to shine with beautiful ceramics and bracelets, and our productions of AnnieĀ showcased the girls’ theatrical talent.

As we prepare for an amazing 100th year at Lochearn, let us remember “to make the whole camp happier for our being here.” All of you certainly did that in 2015, and we look forward to next summer with “an open mind and a kind and caring heart.”

Happy Camping,
Tony & Stacie - Directors at Camp Lochearn
