WALT WHITMAN - CAMP INFORMATION

Camp Type: Overnight
Session Length: 3 Weeks 4 Weeks 7 Weeks
Camp Focus: Traditional Camp Activities, Athletics, Arts, Adventure


Located in the scenic White Mountains of New Hampshire, our traditional coed overnight summer camp for kids has been an exciting and fun summer home for generations of campers.

We provide excellent instruction to help our campers improve in all of the physical skills at camp, while focusing on the care and attention necessary to develop their full potential as individuals and as members of the Camp Walt Whitman family.

The arts program at Camp Walt Whitman provides multiple outlets for our campers’ creative interests and talents. Professional artists and teachers lead regularly scheduled art classes in separate, well-equipped studios for ceramics, woodworking and crafts. Our Lego Loft and Technology Tent provide additional opportunities for creating. And for artistically inclined campers, daily and weekly elective periods provide even more time to complete projects and explore all of camp’s artistic options.

Campers can also look forward to being a part of a theatrical production led by an experienced theater director who helps kids develop their stage presence. Our Junior Campers all participate in some way, either by acting on stage, helping with set design, creating costumes, or working the lights, sound or curtain. By the 4th grade, participation becomes optional, but so many campers choose to keep performing that each age group presents its own play, and many participate in one of our two talent shows.

Productions take place in the Jancy and Bill Dorfman Center. Completed in 2016, it boasts a professional light and sound board, and as the only air-conditioned building in camp, it’s a wonderful place to be on warm nights!

Campers have multiple outlets to make music, too, either by specializing during elective times in a cappella groups, guitar lessons, or drum making, or by joining a camp band.
