OWLE Program



OWLESThe OWLE program is designed for 16 and 17 year old girls following their last year as campers at Onaway. With the New Hampshire woods and Maine wilderness as the classroom, the girls learn valuable outdoor skills and essential life lessons.

The emphasis of this program is to help girls realize their leadership potential and to test it out in a number of wilderness situations. The program helps the girls appreciate the environment, instills in them a spirit of adventure, and promotes teamwork in challenging situations.

The three week trip includes canoeing, sea kayaking, rock climbing and backpacking. Each girl is assigned as "leader of the day", making decisions for the group, several times during the trip.  

The tuition for the OWLE program is $4000 for the summer of 2018.
