New Hampshire Magazine, June 2012:

"The most important feature of Squam, however, remains the atmosphere of creative safety that Elizabeth provides. Many call it life-changing. A brief foray through the "my story" section of Squam's website reveals tales of synchronistic discoveries of the camps, initial reluctance to sign on and wary arrivals, followed by a lot of welcoming hugs and amazing creative breakthroughs. People leave the camp with new friends and outlooks on their lives." . . . read more
