PLEASE NOTE: The following content pertains to summer 2020. We anticipate this year's camp program will look similar to last season, but we are still awaiting updated guidance from the State of NH. Once guidance has been updated for 2021, this page will updated accordingly.

Per Governor Sununu's Stay at Home 2.0 for Day Camps: "Day camp attendees are restricted to children who are New Hampshire residents or out of state campers who have met a 14 day quarantine requirement."
We encourage all interested camper families who have questions about this policy to reach out to us at email@example.com or by calling (603) 881-4815.
Significant edits have been made to the 2020 Camper Policies & Procedures Handbook. All registered families are expected to read the latest revisions and familiarize themselves with these changes to the 2020 season, per state guidance.
We are accepting registrations for the 2020 season, as normal. The State of NH has lifted restrictions and we are now able to serve all families, including those considered "non-essential" workers.
Due to government mandates, including social distancing and reduced group size protocols, program spots may be limited this summer. All registration is accommodated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Submission of program tuition and registration fee payments are required, as normal, to hold a child’s spot.

Camp Lovewell is keeping up with the latest health and safety recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Camp Association (ACA), as well as NH Stay at Home 2.0 Day Camp guidance.
We encourage you to read our 2020 Season Health & Safety Protocols to learn more.
Please note that certain camp activities may be restricted in the 2020 season, due to State guidance. Please visit our Activities page for more information on our typical camp activities.
Due to health, safety, and hygiene guidance in the 2020 season, any camper who wishes to kayak and/or swim in the pond is responsible for providing his/her own “safe for use” personal flotation device (PFD), per ACA guidelines.
“Safe for use” means that PFDs are:
- 1. US Coast Guard-approved;
- 2. Of proper type*, size, and fit for each user;
- 3. Sufficiently buoyant to support designated weight; and
- 4. In serviceable condition (clasps, zippers, and so on are in working condition).
* Approved types: USCG-approved Type I, II, III, or V
If a camper's PFD does not fit the aforementioned criteria, he/she will not be permitted to swim or kayak in the pond.
Pool: All non-swimmers are still expected to provide a US Coast Guard-approved PFD for all pool and pond activities All non-swimmers are still expected to provide a US Coast Guard-approved PFD for all pool and pond activities.
Absences due to a camper and/or household member contracting coronavirus (with documentation provided by a physician of a positive COVID-19 diagnosis) will be eligible for a refund or credit.
Our standard policy applies to all other absences and/or withdrawals. The annual registration fee ($25) is non-refundable. Please make separate payments for registration fees and program payments. Visit our Rates & Dates and Registration pages for more information.
We are unfortunately unable to provide campus tours for the 2020 season, as we are following stricter health and safety protocol on campus. In lieu of in-person tours, we encourage interested families to view our comprehensive video tour, found on our Camp Tour & FAQ page.
