|It is significant under Criterion A in the area of Entertainment/Recreation for its strong associations with the evolution of Squam as a destination for summer homes. The camp was established by Ellen Balch Huntington, a member of a family with early, long and influential ties to summers at Squam. It later passed to the Quincy Porter family in whose ownership it has been for the last sixty-seven years. The camp is also significant for its association with an early youth camp, Camp Aloha. Camp Ossipee is significant under Criterion C as an excellent example of a turn-of-the-twentieth-century summer camp that is virtually unaltered. The camp is one of the oldest seasonal building types at Squam-a form intended to be of low impact and thus complement the relationship between a built structure and the stunning beauty of the surrounding natural landscape. This primary property type is identified and described in the Multiple Property listing entitled Squam: The Evolution and Preservation of a Lakeside Community. Under both criteria, Camp Ossipee retains an exceptionally high level of integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling and association.
