Camp kidsAs we shovel out from yet another snowstorm, it's hard to believe that summer vacation – and bored kids – will be here soon. UNH offers a range of camps and programs to entertain and educate K-12 youth.

At Project SMART, talented high school students study advanced topics in science, mathematics and computers. The Thompson School of Applied Science offers a culinary camp, and Engineeristas is an engineering camp for middle school girls. KEEPERS for Kids introduces students grades 2 to 5,to various engineering fields, and the UNH Writers Academy provides an opportunity for young writers entering grades 5 - 12 to write, edit, and publish their own stories, poems, and plays.

A new website makes it easier than ever to explore the offerings, from arts and academics to sports, water fun, and traditional camps.

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.

Several programs are already accepting registrations. Learn more about summer youth programs programs and join the email list for updates here for updates here or contact Cathy Leach at cathy.leach@unh.edu.
