Camp Pemigewassett


Camp Pemigewassett ("Pemi") is a traditional, sleepaway camp for boys ages 8-15, where independence, skills, and citizenship develop through community living and support. Pemi offers instruction from beginner through advanced levels in four program areas: Land & Water Sports, Nature, Music & Art, and Trips. Campers come from 25-28 states and 8-10 countries outside the USA, with 170 campers at any one time. Pemi's grounds are stunning. Located next to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, we are the sole occupant of the lake. Camp Pemigewassett is the oldest residential boys' camp in the country still owned and managed by the founding families.
