Default Farm Island Update

Dear Members of the Belknap Community:

With Opening Day less than 48 hours away, we write this afternoon with positive news to share with you following our May 17th communication regarding dynamics with our neighbor, Mr. Owen, on Farm Island. Earlier this week, in response to our legal filings, the Carroll County Superior Court issued an Order imposing significant geographic restrictions on Randy Owen’s movements in the Town of Tuftonboro, where Camp Belknap is located.

Per the Court’s order, “Randy L. Owen is enjoined from being present on Farm Island from June 26, 2022 through September 11, 2022. He is enjoined from being within a one-mile radius of Camp Belknap property, including the main camp at Chase Point Road, Farm Island or Melvin Island, by boat or by land.”

We had planned for this potential outcome, and now we have determined, in consultation with the Board of Trustees, that our use of our land on Farm Island may resume this summer. As always, camper excursions or overnights to Farm Island and our wholly-owned Melvin Island (“Little Huck”) will be supervised by multiple members of our staff.

We thank you for your support and encouragement through this process. We recognize this update may raise questions, and we welcome calls at any time. Please know that our number one priority, camper safety, guides each and every decision we make.

In closing, please know our staff eagerly awaits the arrival of your boys at Belknap! We are excited and ready to provide another amazing experience under the pines - a summer where we are unplugged, anchored in the present, and having growth experiences that will stay with us for a lifetime.

Timi-Hi and Seek the Joy,

Seth & Stephanie Kassels, Co-Executive Directors
Tom Wintner, Chair of the Board of Trustees
