Our Values

Camp Quinebarge, founded in 1936, carries the same values today that it was founded over 80 years ago. Experiential learning, making memories and friendships, trying new things in a safe and inclusive community are the cornerstones of what we do and what we have always done. Campers will come into their summer with curiosity and enthusiasm and leave a little more confident, a little more outgoing, and with a special ember of memory that will stay with them for their entire lives as they have taken part in something truly special. Our most important goal at Camp Quinebarge is to foster a nurturing environment for all children, where they can grow as individuals and as a group. Quinebarge is located in the heart of New Hampshire’s Lakes and Mountains regions, covers over 70 acres and boasts some of the finest camp facilities in the country.



Quinebarge’s beautiful location; wide-ranging program; happy, healthy, positive culture; and superb staff of top-notch professionals offer a chance for each child to experience a summer of challenges and fun!

Values and traditions are important to us. As educators, our counselors strive to instill in each camper a sense of responsibility to our community. By the time summer ends our campers are more well rounded and more confident.

Whether a camper comes for a session or the whole summer, he or she will be exposed to all Camp offers, make new friends that will last a lifetime and return home eager to make strong contributions in their community.

Quinebarge is an independent Camp accredited by the American Camp Association and licensed by the state of New Hampshire.

An Inclusive Community

Camp Quinebarge is a community that invites children from all backgrounds, religions, socio-economic situations, gender identities, races and so on to come together to grow and learn from one another in a positive, safe and encouraging environment. We ensure each child is able to pursue their goals and be themselves and our staff assist this period of growth and exploration. While our program and activities are designed to be fun for all, ultimately it is the friendships and shared experiences we forge together that make Quinebarge the special place children will remember for the rest of their lives.
