Camp Wildcat is cancelled until further notice, including summer 2021
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.

Camp meets Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.
