History of Camp Gottalikachallenge

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 in beautiful New Hampshire.

Initially a day camp established in 1994, sessions were held at multiple sites around the state. The overnight session option debuted in 2001. For many years our overnight sessions were hosted at YMCA Camp Coniston in Grantham, NH, and later expanded to include Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH. By 2010, both overnight sessions had migrated to Brewster Academy.

The day camp session was reintroduced in 2018, hosted at Southern New Hampshire University. We continue to seek ways to serve more campers in different parts of the state.

Our parent organization, New Hampshire Innovation and Creativity Connection (NHICC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fostering teamwork, creative problem solving, and innovation in New Hampshire. Working with students from preschool through college, NHICC sponsors multiple programs to help New Hampshire’s youth become the leaders and innovators of the future.
