What is camp like?

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 and 15-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.

"I cannot thank you enough for how magical this camp was and will continue to be for us, and all children. You, and all the staff and the volunteers change lives!  The role models, the kindness and love and acceptance from everyone is priceless...this will give him confidence to fall back on if and when times do get rough."
