Summer 2021 Update

The University of New Hampshire has 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 Campus Rec programs and hope you will find suitable alternatives for a wonderful summer experience.
