If you would like to send your child to summer camp but don’t know where to start, then we invite you to visit our FREE Summer Camp & Program Expos.

Held at two convenient locations, these interactive camp events allow parents and their children the opportunity to speak one-on-one with representatives from local programs about their summer camps and programs.

(You can find a growing list of participating camps to the right.)

The 2019 FREE Summer Camp Expos are:

Wondering how to prepare your kids for camp this summer?

Don't forget to check out the March 2019 issue of ParentingNH, distributed in late February, which features a special section containing articles and advice for parents, such as how to choose the best summer program, getting ready for camp, preparing kids for the first time away from home, what to pack and more.

If you can't grab a copy of the March issue ahead of time, we'll have plenty on hand at the Summer Camp and Program Expos.

Why summer camp?

If your child wants to explore something new or develop an existing interest, summer camps offer a great opportunity to learn in a fun environment. Summer camps also help create memories and friends that will last a lifetime.

  • Arts and crafts cramps
  • Performing arts camps

Why attend ParentingNH's Summer Camp & Programs Expo?

Gain peace of mind knowing that you can meet with the people who will be watching over your children this summer. Each Expo offers a unique opportunity for parents and children to talk with the counselors and professionals who can answer all the questions you may have about what your children will learn – and what you need to know to plan for your child's experience in both day and overnight programs.

New Hampshire and New England are home to hundreds of amazing summer camps and programs. Sometimes, figuring out how and where to start researching is the hardest part of the planning process. To help make things a little easier, we invite you to visit our Virtual Summer Camp Expo. Browse through 200+ camps and programs on your own time and find the perfect fit for your child or children.
