Merrimack Valley YMCA: Camp Nokomis for Girls

Laconia, NH


Since 1952, Camp Nokomis has offered a high quality camp experience for girls. During each of the four two-week sessions, 150 campers are led by a staff of sixty. The camp is located on 40 acres of Bear Island, one of the largest islands on Lake Winnipesaukee.

The Camp Nokomis program facilities include multi-purpose playing fields, tennis and basketball courts, archery ranges, a spacious craft shop, and a log-built recreation lodge with a fieldstone fireplace.

Camp Nokomis' program caters to each girl's individual abilities and needs, while remaining sensitive to her age and interests. Instructional programs are taught by trained and properly certified staff, providing the best and safest possible learning experience for the camper. Each girl chooses the activities in which she wishes to participate. Her schedule, which includes athletic and creative activities, will also have "rest times" and unscheduled periods when a variety of other activities may be pursued. Competitive opportunities exist but the emphasis is always on personal growth and enjoyment. To enhance the daily schedule, special events are planned each session and in the evenings.

Camp Lawrence and Camp Nokomis are both located on Bear Island in Meredith, NH on Lake Winnipesaukee.  Due to this unique location, the only way to get to the camps is by boat. 

Camp Nokomis offers something rare in today's world: a consistent, responsive, and caring atmosphere enclosed in a beautiful, natural environment. Camp friendships are enduring. Camp experiences develop confidence with which to confront the challenges of the outside world.
