One week at summer camp can and does change lives. When asked about her memories from camp, a past camper responded with: “I won a best camper award. To this day, I don’t know why they picked me, but I remember crying. It was the first time I ever really felt liked by my peers. I had only one or two friends at school, but I was friends with everyone at camp. I was one of the oldest campers that year and the kids called me mom. It was great to be looked up to like that. I remember them all cheering when I won that award. I got a small trophy. I still have it. That was 28 years ago.”
The mission of Copper Cannon Camp is to enrich the lives of under-served youth of New Hampshire by providing a quality, tuition-free camp experience.
Copper Cannon Camp is the only tuition-free summer camp experience for children living in New Hampshire. Our founder, Hamilton Ford, overcame an underprivileged childhood and was changed by a summer camp experience. He decided then and there that summer camp was something that every child, regardless of financial status, deserved to experience. And over 50 years and 20,000 campers later, we uphold that same belief to this day.
