YMCA Camp Coniston

About YMCA Camp Coniston

Twelve hundred acres of pristine wilderness in the mountains of western New Hampshire are home to YMCA Camp Coniston. Our summer residential camp encompasses a rustic environment nestled along the 3.5 mile shore of the lake from which Camp takes it name.

As a nonprofit social service agency with a focus on youth, our mission is to create experiences that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Camp is where campers canoe and swim, make fires and friends, try archery and riflery, and explore drama and the arts.

But Camp is much more than that.

Campers and counselors work together, learn new skills, and build an honest, caring and respectful community where all individuals grow. It is this strong sense of community that translates into an unparalleled loyalty and fondness for Camp Coniston, among counselors and campers alike.


Program Director

May 2019 - August 2019 Croydon, NH
“I had the opportunity to direct over 150 staff members in planning schedules and creating evening programs for over 400 campers. I got the opportunity to be creative in making plot lines and objectives for campers to complete and I got to work as a director for my peers and learn how to give direction to people my own age and even older than me. ”
