Our camp is located in scenic New Hampshire on 116 acres, with a mile of frontage on a beautiful 200-acre lake.
Please note: Due to high demand, we now accept new campers ages 8 through 13 only. 14 + year-olds are required to have attended our camp(s) prior to 2018. Prior family campers are considered returners.
We operate as a typical overnight camp; do not formally talk about gender, we just let our kids be kids!
We have three meals together as an entire camp, 4-5 structured activity periods, two free periods, and an all-camp evening activity
Campers sleep in rustic cabins, called bunks, with others of the same age group and choose bunkmates with similar or varied gender identities
Campers are under the direct care of camp counselors at all times
Campers and counselors are called by their preferred name and pronoun
Campers sign up for activity periods based on their preferences
Our meals are nutritious, well-balanced, and offer allergen and vegetarian/vegan-friendly options
Campers interact the old fashioned way - no video games, Internet, or cell phones. Music players are allowed.
Parents & family members who drop off their kids at camp on opening day are invited to stay for a 90-minute parent meetup group

It is important to note that we are not a therapeutic camp. Overnight camp is an intense experience away from home for kids who can be self-sufficient (with help from our camp counselors) and enjoy constant socializing, the outdoors, and an often loud dining experience. Please contact us if you are unsure if our camp is right for your child.
"Going to Aranu'tiq was the BEST experience my child has EVER had, and she grew into a confident and more outgoing girl during her time there!! She has been empowered through the validation and acceptance she received at camp, and I will be forever grateful to you for this gift in my daughter."
Activities & Accommodations
Canoeing, kayaking, swimming, & stand-up paddle boarding in our crystal clear lake, plus arts & crafts, drama/acting, music, archery, rock climbing, "gaga" (a popular type of dodgeball), low ropes adventure course, and a host of sports such as soccer, kickball, basketball, volleyball, and more. Camp also includes campfires, a talent show, and other special activities.
Campers stay in cabins with approximately 7 other campers and 2 counselors. Cabins are rustic inside with bunk beds and space to "hang out" in the middle. Restrooms and showers are nearby, and are being completely rebuilt for summer 2018. All restrooms and showers provide ample privacy for our campers.
