About CAMP WICOSUTA

CAMP WICOSUTA...Underneath New Hampshire Skies in 2022!

A traditional four-week sleepaway camp for girls in New Hampshire that offers two sessions. 

Our goal is for every camper to walk away feeling confident in herself, and competent in her abilities in any number of areas. We teach these skills in a physically and emotionally safe community in which our campers are challenged to move past their self-set limits.

Our counselors are the main reason campers return to Wicosuta each summer and their energy, enthusiasm, support, and teamwork creates an atmosphere in which our campers learn, grow, and achieve.

Work with people from all over the world in a residential setting.

Season Dates:

June 3 - August 14
Head Counselors and Activity Heads

June 9 - August 14

Camp Wicosuta ran in Summer 2021 using health and safety protocols. As the Covid landscape continues to evolve we are updating and adjusting our policies.
