Camp Gottalikachallenge

Art music and theater, Day camps, Educational programs, Residential and overnight camps


Camp Gottalikachallenge is one of the oldest creativity camps in the United States. Every summer, we welcome campers from all over the world to a week of summer camp fun at a variety of sites around New Hampshire, sponsored by New Hampshire Destination Imagination.

We provide a fast-paced adventure in problem solving. Our campers’ days are filled with hands-on learning, challenging activities with plenty of mental muscle-stretching games, and zany fun guaranteed to get the creativity flowing! Our program focuses on helping each camper to develop their creative potential. The goal is to empower our campers to approach life’s challenges with confidence. We do this by honing their creative and critical thinking skills, leadership skills, problem solving abilities, and teamwork.

“Gotta Camp” creates a safe, structured, caring and supportive environment. Campers are encouraged to share their talents, to take risks, to recognize their similarities and differences, to be inclusive, become leaders, and to have fun! In this idyllic place, campers often form lasting friendships with their team and dorm mates.
