Canoeing at UNH Camp Wildcat at Mendums Pond

Camp Wildcat

March 30, 2021: University administrators have made the difficult decision to cancel in-person, on-campus youth programs in summer 2021.

The decision was made after careful review of available staffing, COVID-19 health and safety requirements, and the significant work required over the summer to ensure the university can open fully for the fall semester.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause for family summer planning. We truly appreciate your interest in our youth programs and camps. We look forward to a return to our usual educational and fun programming in summer 2022.

Camp Wildcat is a long-standing Day Camp sponsored by UNH Campus Recreation.

The mission of Camp Wildcat, established in 1985, is to provide a variety of recreational opportunities to community children while also enhancing the educational experiences of UNH students. Programs promote growth and development for the campers while offering the college students meaningful work experience.

Campers explore nature and the environment, participate in sports, learn new skills and crafts, make new friends, and have fun while being active outdoors!
