founder of Copper Cannon Camp, Hamilton Ford, never forgot the
significant impact of his adventures as a young boy at a summer camp.
Camp offered him an outdoor experience, new friends, and a retreat from
poverty. That life-changing experience eventually led to his founding of
Copper Cannon Camp in 1963. From its humble beginnings in an old
Franconia ski lodge to its present location on 128 acres bordering the
White Mountain National Forest in Bethlehem, Copper Cannon Camp
continues to embody Ham Ford’s commitment to provide low-income young
people with life-enriching camp experiences.
