Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you have a seven-week session?
The single, seven-week season is essential for fostering character growth, confidence, a sense of each boy’s value to a community, and lifelong friendships. Significant achievements such as learning to sail or producing a three-act play cannot be completed in a shorter time. As they progress toward these goals, boys learn the traits that such achievement requires. More than one hundred alumni return to Pasquaney each summer to visit. A remarkable number of them say, “My summers here were the most important summers of my life.” First-year campers often say at the start of the summer that a seven week season seems like a long time, but, by the end of the summer, they cannot believe how quickly time has passed.

Why do campers wear uniforms?
All campers and counsellors wear a uniform. This tradition enables us to focus on character rather than on superficial distinctions.
Why are no electronic devices permitted at camp?
At Pasquaney, we generate our own entertainment. To further encourage interaction of boys and counsellors, there are no televisions, walkmen, CD/mp3 players, iPods or radios.
How do you determine tuition?
Tuition covers approximately 55% of the cost of each camper’s summer. The generosity of alumni, parents, and friends covers the remaining 45%.
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is available on the basis of need. Approximately 20% of the campers each summer receive financial aid. Please contact the director for details.
Are campers mostly from the same background?
No. In terms of geography, the 95 campers come from approximately 25 states and several foreign countries. Boys from varied economic, ethnic, religious and family backgrounds constitute our community each summer and form enduring friendships.
How do you determine the size of camp?
Our small size enables each boy and counsellor to know everyone else on a deeper level than if Camp were larger. A small community fosters close relationships and allows the council to focus on each boy’s growth.
Why do you focus on boys ages 12 to 16?
The age that we serve is a crucial one in a boy’s development as he enters adolescence and begins looking for role models outside his immediate family.
