PLEASE NOTE the safety of our Campers and Staffers is our top priority. We are in the process of determining what additional safety protocols will be needed this summer, and will publish those when available.
NEW! Overnight Camp is open to campers age 10-15, going into grades 5-10. This is a special expansion of our usual age range in order to allow any campers who missed out on what would have been their final summer in 2020!
Sessions will be hosted at two different sites this summer:
- Session 1: July 25-30, 2021 at Lions Camp Pride in New Durham, NH. NEW this summer, Overnight Session 1 will be at Camp Pride. Campers and Staffers will reside in fully accessible bunk houses, and meals are provided by Camp Pride’s dining hall that is specially attuned to accommodate any dietary restrictions.
- Session 2; August 8-13, 2021 at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH. Campers and Gotta Staffers reside in dorms, and all of our delicious meals are provided by Brewster’s wonderful dining hall that is willing and able to accommodate any dietary restrictions.
Overnight camp is six days and five nights of non-stop activity, right from the first moment! Each morning, campers work in teams of 10 with two staff members to create a solution to the week’s Gotta-Problem – this includes coming up with a story, writing and learning a script, and building all of the associated props, scenery, costumes, and technical devices.
Every afternoon, campers select from a wide variety of activities—outdoor games, swimming, or a specialty session—a potpourri of stagecraft techniques, arts and crafts, unusual projects, and so much more. Evening activities range from campfires to group games and even a talent show. Finally, we wind down with milk and cookies before turning in at the end of the day.
