Singing Eagle Lodge is located on the shores of Squam Lake in Holderness, New Hampshire. (See Getting Here page for a map). We use the land and facilities of Camp Deerwood, a boys' camp that has existed on this spot since 1945. The use of this land as a camp goes back even further, to 1887 when it was the site of Camp Asquam, the second oldest camp in the United States. Deerwood has nearly 100 acres of land, including 1700 feet of lakefront.
At the top of a hill is the main lodge which provides a spectacular view of Squam Lake, Mt Chocorua, and the Sandwich Range of mountains. The lodge is the center of our activities, where we meet for assemblies, various indoor activities, and council fires. A separate performance building provides a venue for music, dance, and drama performances.
Campers are housed by age group in airy screened cabins with indoor plumbing and electricity. A rustic dining hall, also with wonderful views of the lake and mountains, is the scene of good meals, lots of singing, announcements, much conversation and fun. The kitchen is well equipped and staffed; the chef serves balanced meals and can accommodate various dietary needs. Our waterfront includes a sandy swimming area, swim docks for competitions, a twelve-foot diving tower with water-slide, canoes, kayaks, Sunfish sailboats, sailboards and a Hobie cat. Other camp facilities include, a ceramics facility, forge, soccer field, basketball, volleyball and badminton courts, as well as clay tennis courts. There is an infirmary supervised by a registered nurse, and hospitals 15 miles away in Plymouth and Laconia, NH.
