Eager children love to spend their days around friends and with fun counselors at sum- mer camp to create new memo- ries and have the times of their lives as they take a well-needed
gram. Trips include canoeing, backpacking, biking, and nature and wilderness skills training. In addition, boys who are 14 or older may apply to work for Mayhew, earning a salary and a dollar-for-dollar matching scholarship for post-secondary educational pursuits.

The Island Challenge- During the first two years, the boys (ages 10-12) participate in a rigorous and vibrant 25-day residential summer program. From the first day to the last, the boys work together in small, tight-knit groups, tackling steep physical, social, and emotional challenges. For many of the boys, Mayhew is their first op- portunity to find out who they can be and how much they can do in a setting away from out- side influences.
Summers 3-6
Link-Up Expeditions- Be- ginning in the third year, boys can participate in a five-day, adventure-based summer pro-
porting the boys through high school graduation, assisting them in establishing goals for their lives beyond high school, brainstorming ways to over- come barriers to success, and emphasizing the importance of giving back to Mayhew and the broader community.
