First day of camp: Please come Monday morning from 7:45-8:30 am at the gym lobby (use the entrance to camp that is just off Route 9A). We ask a parent or guardian to be with the camper at the time of registration so we can go over medical forms, emergency contact information, and sign in and sign out procedures.
What to pack for the day: We highly recommend packing sneakers as well as flip-flops, a beach towel, sunscreen, a water bottle, and a modest bathing suit. Please label all personal items, as Camp Spofford takes no responsibility for things that are lost or stolen at camp. On rainy days, we ask that you pack each child with rain gear such as rain-boots, rain-jackets, and a sweatshirt, should it be cold.
Snack Shop: We will be going to the snack shop for ice cream and snacks on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you would like you child to go to the snack shop, please give your child’s money to their counselor on Monday morning (suggested amount- $3-5 for the week).
Camper week begins with check-in between 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Sunday and concludes at 9:00 a.m. the following Saturday. If a camper is coming with parents who are signed up for Family Camp
(which begins on Saturday), the camper may stay in a camper cabin until Sunday check-in ($75) or stay with parents in their accommodation ($50). If a camper needs to stay over for one night before or after the week they are enrolled, there is a surcharge of $89. Camp office must be notified in advance.
Sibling Discount – If more than one sibling is attending camp this summer, a discount of 15% off one registration will be applied. In other words, “Buy one get one 15% off!” If it is difficult to find the sibling discount button on our online registration, just call the office and we will apply it.
Medical form – New Hampshire state law requires every camper to have a current, doctor-signed medical form and a physical completed within two years of arrival date.

While your child is at camp, Camp Spofford has a No Phone Home
Policy. All incoming and outgoing calls need to go through the office. You can, however, email your camper using a special service that we have made available. This service saves our office staff a tremendous amount of time and energy during the busiest months of the year. It is used industry-wide, and provides a good product. We ask that you not send email directly to the camp office as a means of reaching your child. See also our letter to parents about this service:

Each year, Camp Spofford gives scholarships to campers that can not afford the entire camp fee. If your family is in need of financial help, please fill out this scholarship application and email the application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Most scholarships that are granted are half off the total price. This means that you will need to make a non-refundable deposit of $175 for Youth Camp ($50 for Adventure Day Camp) at the time of your online registration. Please note that at this time, scholarships are only available for Encounter Junior Weeks, Encounter Teen Weeks, Soccer Week, and Roughin’ It Week.
