Camp Wildcat

Camp Wildcat gives school-age day campers a chance to explore nature and the environment, participate in sports, learn new skills and crafts, make new friends, and have fun while being active this summer. Courtesy photo.

From campfires to computers, sailing to singing, the University of New Hampshire offers a range of summer camps and programs to entertain and educate K-12 youth. Registration for many of the 2014 offerings, now easier to explore on a new website, is now open.

Programs range from traditional summer camp fare to specialty athletics camps for athletes of all ages to offerings that scratch a variety of academic itches. Young visual artists, dancers and thespians can pursue their artistic passions, and instrumental and choral musicians can spend tuneful weeks in Durham. For a full list of camps, dates, ages, and registration information, go to http://www.unh.edu/youth-programs/.

Most programs are held at UNH in a supportive, safe, and fun environment; instructors are UNH faculty and staff as well as high school teachers and college students. Camps utilize UNH's state-of-the-art facilities: athletics fields and rinks, science labs and equipment, theaters and art studios, and outdoor resources like Mendum's Pond.
