BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: High Meadows Farms, located in Moultonborough & Wolfeboro, offers camp sessions for riders of all levels and all ages at their Wolfeboro Farm. Their motto is no one is too young or too old to learn how to ride a horse! Each week of camp is unique but all share in the enthusiasm of caring for their horse, learning their personalities, ways to communicate with their horse and of course riding in the arena or on trails. High Meadows camp is not just a camp of learning how to ride. The camp highlights self-confidence and self-esteem in each child. Watching the transformation of each child from the beginning of the week to the end of the week is not only noticeable to the instuctors, but also to the children.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Specializing in building self-confidence and working with kids with ADD and ADHD, as well as some autistic. It's amazing what horseback riding can do to help!

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:

Large outdoor riding arena and lovely cross-country jumping course, and beautiful trails.

Winter Location offers an amazing 10 stall insulated barn with a huge indoor riding arena, and 102 Acres for wooded trails. Perfect to stay warm in the winter weather, or enjoy a beautiful snowy trail ride!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Each week focuses around a theme. We have designed a program consisting of five Levels in which the campers learn about proper horsemanship and develop their riding skills while they also study horse terminology, history, first aid and more!

On the first day of camp each camper receives a notebook containing all the information they need to learn in order to complete the first level. Both riding and horsemanship goals are set, to be accomplished by the parent show on Friday. Throughout the week the campers practice and study the given skills through games and hands-on experiences.

Each camper is assigned a “horse of their own” for the week. The camper is responsible for the general care of their horse such as grooming, tacking, bathing, watering, and preparing meals as well as other elements involved in horse ownership.

On Friday afternoon, the campers present to parents and relatives a riding “show” to music that they have designed to demonstrate what they learned during the week. Following the show is a graduation and goodbye ceremony.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Kroka Expeditions is committed to awakening in young people a connection to nature and the spirit within, and a capacity for conscious living and compassionate service. We strive to achieve this through wilderness adventure, community living, farming, and the practice of traditional and indigenous skills.

Here we work to bring intention, connection, and a sense of responsibility to the work that we do.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our base camp facility is a functioning organic farm, garden, and community living village where staff and students live side by side. We have three Cree lodges, all hand built by past students, as well as a number of canvas wall tents on platforms. There is no running water or electricity and all cooking is done over open fire. Students engage in the functions of life by working with the animals, harvesting fresh food from the garden, splitting wood, and gathering water. Back behind the dwellings are beautiful woods that lead to a stream and beaver pond; excellent for exploration! This is where students stay when they arrive before heading off on their expedition adventure, and again when they return.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: We offer a wide variety of programs in the summer, spanning from ages 9 - 19. Our programs for younger children foster the spirit of living and playing in nature, while cultivating a connection to the land and setting a foundation for outdoor adventure skills. Our more advanced programs for older students and adults use wilderness expedition and adventure as a tool for experiencing independence, exhilaration, freedom, responsibility, and empowerment, as well as creating deep connections with new friends and the natural world.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Ocean Leadership Expedition

This is a journey that traverses 100 miles of coastal waters along the picturesque Gulf of Maine from Belfast to Frenchmen Bay just north of Bar Harbor. Along the way we will pass Deer Island and Isle Au Haute, as we travel on to Mount Desert Island. Before leaving for expedition students will craft wooden oars in the Kroka workshop and dehydrate fruit, berries, and meat from our farm for the journey. Our sea faring fleet will consist of solo and tandem ocean kayaks, and oar rigged student-made voyager canoes. When the wind is with us we will sail, and we will learn to navigate with map and compass through the complexity of tides, currents, fog, and many a spruce covered rocky island. We will feast on wild foods, gather seaweed, dig for clams, and fish for mackerel. Ocean treasures will form in our hands as we carve wood and gather basket materials from the tidal line. Students will study Marine Ecology, learn to use a variety of knots, read weather, start fire by friction, and make simple shelters in the wilderness. Students will also develop leadership skills through the practice of leading and following, discussing and debating, and forming a strong sense of community built of new lasting friendships.

For more info, please visit: Our Camp Website Link: www.kroka.org.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Please call or email for financial aid information.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Experience Kroka through a day of meaningful work: Our Camp Website Link: www.kroka.org

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Experience the Kroka Difference:

Kroka journeys are extended wilderness expeditions (up to two months at a time), where modern ways of travel are combined with indigenous knowledge and age-old traditions. You will learn to navigate with map and compass, and be guided by the sun and stars. Meals will be cooked from scratch over an open fire using ingredients from local farms, our own animals and gardens, and gifts harvested in the wilderness. You will sleep in a handmade tent or shelter, and your travels will take you through uncharted territory.

Kroka education is experiential and place-based. You learn tree identification to select the right trees for firewood, and to make baskets and paddles. Wilderness medicine is taught miles away from human contact in the depths of winter to the song of the howling wind. History is taught through personal stories of people who have spent their entire lives living on the land. You engage deeply in your learning. This ownership leads to the success of your journey, and your achievement is written on the proud faces of your teammates.

Kroka teachers are outstanding educators and wilderness guides from around the world. They bring to students a depth of experience and breadth of knowledge that is combined with strong character and an unshakable belief in humanity. Their personal life stories speak of extended expeditions, sustainable homesteads, the forgotten arts and crafts of indigenous societies, and passionate work for positive change in the communities around them.

Kroka experiences are holistic. As we travel through wild places we develop the voice of our community, create our daily necessities out of local natural materials, find food and water in the wilderness, and express our learning through poetry, visual arts, journaling, and the creation of a semester book. When we come out of the wilderness, our simple and intentional lifestyle is continued. Our daily lives center around working to fulfill our own needs, minimizing our ecological footprint, and participating positively in our community. Everyone at Kroka, from director to student, carries important community responsibilities, be it tending to the composting toilet, or cleaning the laundry room.

Kroka students are delightful and inspiring young people, marching to a different drumbeat. They form a close-knit community as they learn to live in harmony and see the best in one another.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Kroka Expeditions is committed to awakening in young people a connection to nature and the spirit within, and a capacity for conscious living and compassionate service. We strive to achieve this through wilderness adventure, community living, farming, and the practice of traditional and indigenous skills. -Kroka teachers are an international group of outstanding educators who draw from Russian, Austrian, Ecuadorian, and American outdoor living traditions. -Our campus is a real village, where staff and students live side-by-side in a community made up of student-crafted traditional dwellings. -Kroka is a working farm, where students share in growing, harvesting, preparing, and eating. -We teach and practice traditional handwork skills using natural materials. -We are committed to the participation of all, regardless of ability to pay.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: VOTED BEST OVERNIGHT CAMP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE BY BOSTON PARENTS PAPER - 2016!!

Our staff is primarily college students, graduates, faculty and former Birch Hill campers. Together we are a diverse group of mature, dignified role models coming from both the United States and abroad. Despite our different backgrounds, as camp counselors and staff there is a common thread that connects us all and brings us together in this magical place that we feel is our home away from home. We love teaching and having fun while maintaining a safe environment that facilitates growth for our campers.

At the beginning of each summer our counselors attend a week-long, comprehensive training course that speaks our values as an organization. Because our staff are hired based on competency in an activity area, this orientation is focused on addressing overarching concepts around making sure each and every camper feels comfortable and at home here at Birch Hill. We strive to hire staff members who have a cheerful disposition and embody the Birch Hill spirit. We bring you the best people for the job.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: CIT program offered to previous campers that are 16 years old during their session. Our goal for the Counselor in Training (CIT) program is to provide an enjoyable and safe summer experience appropriate for older children. The experience will include leadership training and the opportunity to assume some daily responsibilities at Birch Hill, along with the fun and excitement that accompany the rest of our summer program. It is our hope that the CIT campers will begin to develop some of the skills that will allow them to assume additional leadership positions in the future, perhaps as counselors at Birch Hill once they have had one year of college or life experience after high school. For one activity period each day the CITs will work together in their own group under the supervision of Birch Hill staff members. They will use this time to do team building, to learn how to help with the various camp games, activities, and responsibilities.

By the end of the session CITs choose a counselor at Birch Hill they would like to "shadow" and assist them during their activities, and in the cabin. In addition to the CIT Class the primary responsibility of the CITs will be to assist the directors and the staff of Birch Hill. A typical day may involve helping counselors to run events, aiding in the set up and clean up of camp activities. In addition, we will provide opportunities for Leadership/CIT participants to enjoy the richness of the activities and events that our camp has to offer. All CITs receive community service hours and a college recommendation at your request.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Contact our office, chrissy[AT]campbirchhill.com to discuss financial aid or scholarships. We believe every child that wants to come to camp should be able to!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Greetings and welcome to Camp Wicosuta! Wicosuta is a traditional four-week sleepaway camp for girls in Hebron, New Hampshire. At Camp Wicosuta, girls develop confidence and self-esteem by learning and developing new skills, making new friends, and having the time of their lives!

ONE OF THE ORIGINAL SLEEPAWAY CAMPS: Camp Wicosuta was founded in 1920 by Anna Rothman, one of the pioneers of sleepaway camps for girls. Mrs. Rothman knew that by getting young women out of urban areas and into the natural environment surrounded by caring role models and energetic friends, they would learn many of the lessons needed for them to thrive in the world around them.

THE "3 C'S": CONFIDENCE, COMPETENCE & COMMUNITY: Camp Wicosuta teaches young girls skills that build self-confidence and self-esteem. At Wico, our goal is for every child to walk away feeling confident in herself and competent in her ability in any of a number of areas. We teach these lessons in a physically and emotionally safe community in which our campers are challenged to move past their self-set limits.

ELECTIVE SCHEDULE: The elective schedule encourages decision-making and independence, and most importantly, creates a culture where all of our girls participate. Girls choose the activities they like, so they can't wait to get started! Wico is filled with happy, active girls! While we want our youngest campers to get a taste of everything we offer, even they get to choose one elective period a day as they start to develop personal tastes and interests. WICO STAFF: Our staff sets us apart. Highly skilled, well-trained and enthusiastic, we have a high percentage of returning staff each year.

Additionally, we look for new staff with strong backgrounds/interest in working with children and in their activity area. We have a series of staff orientations to train counselors prior to the campers' arrival and continue training throughout the summer.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): We offer 2 complete 4-week sessions and limited 2-week sessions for 1st time campers currently in grades 1-4.

We also have a swimming program on pristine Loon Lake that includes both instructional time and free swim activities.

Music/Band, Fine Arts/Crafts, Video/Filmmaking/Photography, Basketball, Soccer, Swimming, Waterfront/Aquatics, Adventure, Travel, Wilderness/Nature, and more. Overnight Backpacking & Canoeing Program For All Ages That Promotes Leadership & Self Care In The Wilderness.

CAMP FACILITIES: We are located on a mountain that has cabins that host 4-8 campers with 1-2 counselors. We also share the property with a farm that the campers are able to participate in. We also have seven acres on beautiful Loon Lake.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Our unique wilderness oriented programs are a refreshing change from your basic summer camp. In this ever evolving age of being “plugged in” we need to remind kids that playing outside is not only healthy, but fun! Hiking to the top of the tallest mountains in the Northeast and canoeing down the picturesque rivers of New England instills an appreciation for nature that is being lost in this technologically addicted world. It also cannot be overstated how healthy it is for kids to have time away from home to achieve independent growth.

Teenagers and adults that attended CMF as campers fondly remember how it was there that their love for the outdoors was fostered and made it possible to enjoy it later in life. Our program gives campers the opportunity to go on weekly overnight backpacking and canoeing trips to exercise their skills in leadership and self care in the wilderness. Every trip is led by a certified Wilderness First Responder with a wide breadth of experience in the region.

Additionally, we have a swimming program on pristine Loon Lake that includes both instructional time and free swim activities. All staff members have life guard certification.

When not on wilderness trips or at the lake, in camp activities include Rock Climbing under the supervision of qualified instructors, Sports, Photography, Arts and Crafts and Music.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): There is the potential for families to come to camp before and after the regular summer camp sessions.

All the Guides are people over the age of 20 who make a life and living from pursuits involving invention, design, planning and production: artists, architects, engineers, craftspeople, teachers, designers, chefs, and musicians.

Beam’s 1:4 staff to camper ratio makes it possible for all campers to be supervised at all times. All waterfront and lake activities are supervised by Red Cross certified lifeguards. We have a full-time staff nurse with us at camp.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Campers 15+ may enroll as Fellows in either camp session. The Fellows program recognizes the growth that campers experience as they mature into young adults by rewarding them with the opportunity to take a more active role in our camp’s mission. We want Beam Fellows to occupy a special space at our camp. From their arrival at camp, Beam Fellows are specially trained to play an integral role in the realization of the project; they’ll go deeper into the management and building skills required to make the project and take leadership roles in the Waves. Additionally, Fellows assist in documenting and publicizing the project for the larger camp community and beyond.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Tuition assistance is available.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): We invite families to join us at camp on Sunday, July 27 (Session 1) and Sunday, August 24 (Session 2) between 10AM and noon for a celebration of the Beam Project and to pick-up their campers.

CAMPER AGES: 8-15

TYPE OF CAMP: Overnight/Sleepaway. June - August (see www.camppemi.com for session dates & tuition)

CAMPER GENDER(S): All Boy Campers.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Since 1908, Camp Pemigewassett’s abiding mission has been to inspire and support boys aged 8 to 15 as they find their own distinctive paths in becoming self-reliant, caring, and successful young men with a passion for all that they do.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Theater, Musical Theater, Music/Band, Fine Arts/Crafts, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Golf, Swimming, Tennis, Waterfront/Aquatics, Sailing, Team Sports, Science, Adventure, Travel, Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Camp Pemigewassett is located on the edge of the White Mountain National Forest and in the heart of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, in Wentworth, New Hampshire, 30 miles north of Hanover (home of Dartmouth College).

CAMP FACILITIES: Camp Pemigewassett sits besides Lower Baker Pond, a mile long and ¾ mile wide body of water, surrounded by Pemi-owned land, which means no public boat traffic. We have many athletic fields, courts, and ranges, hiking and running trails, two sandy beaches with swimming areas, three streams for exploring and nature study and two campfire circles. We have over 40 buildings, including the Nature Lodge, Woodshop, Library, Mess Hall, Junior Lodge and the Senior Lodge. One of the best ways to see the layout of Camp Pemigewassett is to play with our interactive map!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: We offer instruction and opportunities from beginner through advanced levels in four program areas, sports, nature, music/art/drama, and wilderness trips. Camp Pemigewassett is an all-around camp and is committed equally to excellence in our four program areas. Since 1908, Camp Pemigewassett’s abiding mission has been to inspire and support boys aged 8 to 15 as they find their own distinctive paths in becoming self-reliant, caring, and successful young men with a passion for all that they do.

We believe that Camp Pemigewassett is the oldest summer camp for boys in the country under the same continuous family ownership and management. Founded in 1908 by Edgar and Edwin Fauver and Dudley Reed, Pemi has thrived for well over a century through the vision and commitment of four generations of Fauvers and Reeds.

Pemi recruits staff members who are dedicated to the development of the whole camper, and we train them carefully with an eye to the most informed thinking on the social, physical, and emotional well-being of boys. Our staff’s enhanced leadership, mentorship, and communication skills serve our campers and parents well and become vital traits for staff to carry into future roles and relationships.

Campers of differing backgrounds from all over the world live simply in small and inclusive cabin groups. These close-knit camper families meld with the larger Pemi community in ways that foster key civic values, such as respect for others, integrity, responsibility, sustainability, and generosity of spirit. Our varied program teaches and nurtures practical skills while it encourages the self-challenge, creativity, and resilience that develop a boy’s self-confidence. From the beginning, Pemi’s culture has been one of good humor and joy.

Camp Pemigewassett is an accredited member of the American Camping Association.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Pemi West is a 3.5-week wilderness skills and leadership program that provides a challenging and rewarding experience for 16–17 year old campers.

Participants who wish to extend their leadership training are invited to apply for an optional 2-week Counselor Apprentice Program held at Camp Pemigewassett, Wentworth, NH.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Camp Pemigewassett’s hope is that all boys who wish to attend camp will be able to. Pemi offers a “brother discount” as well as financial assistance to deserving families.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Boys aged 8-15 enroll for one of three sessions at Camp Pemigewassett: full session, first session, or second session. First and Second Sessions provide a solid camp experience within each three-plus week timeframe. Many events and opportunities are unique to each “half,” such that Full Session encompasses all that is offered.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): SESSION I: An Oz Story
June 24 - July 7
Performances July 6 & 7
*there will be a half day of camp on July 4th

Based on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Book adapted by Joshua Goldberg
Lyrics by Joshua Goldberg and Ella McGrail
Music by Joshua Goldberg and Corrie Owens-Beauchesne

Journey with Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Lion- and Toto too- down the Yellow Brick Road! This whimsical new musical adaptation goes back to the roots of L. Frank Baum’s classic novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. When Dorothy is whisked away from dreary Kansas to the magical, marvelous land of Oz, she must travel to the Emerald City to see the Wizard- with helping hands and Wicked Witches around every corner! She’ll soon discover that with a little brains, heart, and courage, home is never far away.

SESSION II: Babe & Bunyan's Big Adventure!
July 8 - July 21
Performances July 20 & 21

A New Musical by Miles Burns

This here is the larger than life story of the legendary folk sidekick, Babe the Big Blue Ox. Being born an oversized blue ox, you can imagine that Babe had a pretty hard time fitting in- that is until he met Paul Bunyan, the mighty lumberjack. Together they cleared forests faster than anyone, and there wasn’t a tangled river they couldn’t straighten out. Some say they even made the 10,000 lakes. It’s going to be a mighty tall tale, and an awfully big adventure!

Session III: Alice
July 22 - August 4
Performances August 3 & 4

Based on Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
Book adapted by Miles Burns
Lyrics by Miles Burns, Scott Hermenau, and Lewis Carroll
Music by Miles Burns and Scott Hermenau

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank and of having nothing to do, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. The ever curious Alice followed after him, tumbling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where each moment is curiouser and curiouser! There she’ll meet the Hatter at his tea party, the smiling Cheshire Cat, the contrary Tweedle Dum and Dee, the temperamental Queen of Hearts, and all the other mad denizens of Wonderland. Will she ever find a way back to her golden afternoon, and finally discover the answer to the Caterpillar’s question, “Who are you?"
