Rockywold - Deephaven Camps Fall BOW




Deephaven Docks on Squam LakeRockywold-Deephaven Camps, on the shores of scenic Squam Lake (On Golden Pond) have been family camps since 1897. These camps were established by 2 pioneering women; Miss Alice Mable Bacon began Deephaven in 1897 and Mrs. Mary Alice Armstrong founded Rockywold in 1901. Mrs. Mary Alice Armstrong bought Deephaven in the summer of 1918 to carry on the ideals and dreams of its late founder and her friend, Miss Alice Mabel Bacon.

Today the camps provide an excellent facility for the NH BOW program to hold their annual weekend workshop. We stay in the cabins of Deephaven, however enjoy the fine cuisine created and served by the excellent staff in the Rockywold dining hall. The setting is superb and the accomodations rustic with an eye to comfort. Each cabin contains an icebox which is kept cold with ice harvested each winter from Squam Lake and insulated under sawdust in the camp's ice house.
