A great opportunity for children to go to summer camp!

The New Hampshire Department of Education is partnering with New Hampshire camps and school-age summer programs across the state to offer students the unique opportunity to move beyond COVID-19 and be a kid again. Students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities benefit from exposure to short-term summer enrichment programs, including in the areas of challenge, friend-making, positivity, and emotional safety. These are all things that New Hampshire camps and school-age programs do best.

In addition to a revitalizing experience, qualified programs will offer students meals and snacks and, of course, the camp’s great programming so that students can come back to school excited to learn in the fall.
