Explore, create, and adventure with friends


Summer Rangers brings themes that explore magical world of wizards and wands, entrepreneurship, New Hampshire wildlife, geology, self empowerment, and cooking to kids who get engaged and excited to be part of it all.  Each camp follows a live-action story line, complete with characters that pop in and out of the portal to help campers understand th theme in an intimate, first-hand way.  They get pulled into the story and follow along to try and predict what’s next!


The final day of each camp is a special treat for parents and community members alike-  a kid-driven finale where campers teach attendees all that they’ve learned.  You’ll be surprised and impressed by the skill and enthusiasm with which they share their new knowledge with others!

  • Campers must be entering 2nd grade+ in the fall (third grade for World’s Best chefs) 


  • CITs must be entering 7th grade+ in the fall


  • Located conveniently in Portsmouth, many kids ride their bikes or walk to camp with parents and/or friends.  If you’re from out of town and want help finding a carpool, let us know!


  • Aftercare is available until 5:00pm.  Reserve your space at registration or sign up the week of camp.


  • Registration opens the second week in January.  Slots fill up quickly.
