DURHAM, N.H. – From campfires to computers, sailing to singing, the University of New Hampshire offers a range of summer camps and programs to entertain and educate K-12 youth. Registration for many of the 2014 offerings, now easier to explore on a new website, is now open.
Programs range from traditional summer camp fare to specialty athletics camps for athletes of all ages to offerings that scratch a variety of academic itches. Young visual artists, dancers and thespians can pursue their artistic passions, and instrumental and choral musicians can spend tuneful weeks in Durham. For a full list of camps, dates, ages, and registration information, go to www.unh.edu/youth-programs.
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.
The University of New Hampshire, founded in 1866, is a world-class public research university with the feel of a New England liberal arts college. A land, sea, and space-grant university, UNH is the state's flagship public institution, enrolling 12,300 undergraduate and 2,200 graduate students.
