TOP NEW HAMPSHIRE SUMMER CAMP: YMCA Camp Wiyaka is a Top Summer Camp located in Richmond New Hampshire offering many fun and enriching camp programs. YMCA Camp Wiyaka also offers CIT/LIT and/or Teen Leadership Opportunities, too.

CAMP LOCATION: Camp Wiyaka is located on Sandy Pond in Richmond, New Hampshire. We are about 30 minutes from Keene, New Hampshire, and about 30 minutes from Athol, Massachusetts. Our residential camp has over 60 acres of woods and fields and sits directly on the waterfront. Please visit our website, at Our Camp Website Link: www.campwiyaka.org, for photos and directions.

CAMP FACILITIES: Campers live in platform tents with up to 5 other children their own age and at least one counselor. Tents are divided into "upper camp" and "lower camp" with 7 tents on the waterfront of Sandy Pond, and 5 tents tucked into the trees. During Coed weeks, genders are divided into seperate tent areas. Meals are served family style and campers share tables with their tent mates in the dining hall. Memory Lodge is our indoor recreation space.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: We offer coed weeks as well as single gender weeks. All campers ages 7 - 15 are welcome to attend our week-long sessions. The Mini Camp program at Camp Wiyaka is built for children ages 7 to 11 who want to try out a residential summer camp but may be worried about staying an entire week. The opportunity to extend a Mini Camp session into a full week may be available if a child finds he/she is not ready to leave Wiyaka before the week session is over.

Camp Wiyaka's Leaders in Training (LIT) program offers young adults ages 14-15 an opportunity to build leadership skills, and be a positive influence the lives of others. While still taking part in typical camper experiences (attending activities and participating in camp events), the LITs have unique opportunities and responsibilities separate from the rest of the camp. LIT's will have the chance to host a campfire as a group, lead an all camp activity, and assist younger campers on registration day. The LIT group will also have an opportunity to complete a service project on camp property.

Our daily schedule allows children to participate in traditional camp offerings as well as choose some unique activities to design their own week. Our waterfront is a great place to play on the shore, swim, fish, or take out a sailboat, canoe, kayak or rowboat. There is time for doing arts and crafts, archery, playing sports and games, learning about nature and so much more. Trips are taken to local areas including Mt. Monadnock, Royalston Falls, and Tully Lake. Every camp day ends with a sing-along campfire.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Camp Wiyaka's Leaders in Training (LIT) program offers young adults age 15 an opportunity to build leadership skills, and be a positive influence the lives of others.
