hundred and fifty dollars for the full

season of three

months. The Camp Council is composed of seven college bred men, whose duty it is to supervise every department of camp life. There is a

resident physician who supervises all responsible sanitary arrangements, and is responsible for the health of the boys.

Every boy enjoys boating and bathing, and yet many boys grow to manhood without learning to properly handle themselves while on and in the water.

To meet this need boats of every description are provided, and experts teach the boys how to handle a boat in case of emergency, how to row single, double, and in ten-oared barge, also to paddle and scull. The boys are taught to swim, dive, and give aid to those needing help. The aim is to have the boys gain perfect control of themselves while on the water, and that this may be possible they are

taught to become thoroughly familiar with rowing and swimming.

Closely allied with the aquatic life is the athletic, and it is difficult to determine which has the stronger hold upon the average boy. Most boys demand outdoor games, in order that they may in such games work off superfluous animal life. At camp the boys enjoy base ball, tennis, tether ball, basket ball, polo and quoits. Contests are held among themselves, and also with other teams about the lake. Running, jumping and all the forms of field athletics are participated in under the supervision of a trained expert. The result of all this life is to give the boys not only great pleasure, but to also properly

and systematically develop the body. Lake Winnepesaukee being almost thirty miles long, and from four to twelve miles in width, and having in it some 278 islands, gives opportunity for many excursions, and the boys enjoy spending a night on one of the many islands,
