The mission of Camp Wildcat, established in 1985, is to provide a variety of recreational opportunities to the children of the community 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 this summer! Children who are entering grades 1-7 may attend Camp Wildcat.
Camp meets Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.
