Wildwood is an overnight summer camp for youth aged 6-17. Located in southern New Hampshire along Hubbard Pond, Wildwood is based on 159 acres of forest, fields and wetlands and borders the nearly 1,500 acre Annett State Forest.
Campers spend their days exploring and developing an appreciation for the natural world.
Overnight Camp Programs
Youth aged 9-14 discover and explore nature during one-week or two-week sessions that run from late June to August. Kids roast s’mores over open fires, sleep under the stars, sing silly songs, paddle canoes around Hubbard Pond, develop self-confidence and make lifelong friendships.
Younger kids aged 7-8 can participate in the three day overnight Wildwood Warbler program held in August.
The older kids aged 16-17 may choose to join the one-week Nature Escape program that combines outdoor exploration and volunteer service. Teens will kayak, canoe, and sail to explore the diverse habitats of Hubbard Pond.
There are many opportunities for campers to conquer the high ropes challenge course, and try various activities such as archery, Gaga ball pit, lakeside amphitheater, and more.
A sample daily schedule can be viewed here.
Three family-style meals are served daily in the dining hall. Example meals include eggs, pancakes, sandwiches, turkey dinner, and spaghetti. Campers will have additional choices at the salad bar. Snacks are available mid-afternoon and during evening programs.
Wildwood is a nut-free camp.
Accommodations include cabins, platform tents, yurts, and wooden tents. Each unit has nearby toilets and washing stations. A central shower features solar-thermal heated water, private showers, and composting toilets.
Also onsite are a camp store, arts and crafts center, and a health center.
