Dear OMK Families,

The White Mountain Adventure Camp information came across my desk this morning.  Limited transportation assistance is available.  Contact Ms. Charlotte Cross for more information.

NH White Mountain Winter Adventure Camps for Military Teens

The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension (UNHCE) 4-H Youth Development program is preparing for its 2012 White Mountain Winter Adventure Camps for teens living in military families.  These four camps will take teens, ages 14 to 18, to the Appalachian Mountain Club's Highland Center in beautiful Bretton Woods (NH), where they will enjoy classic winter sports and activities as they build friendships with other military teens. Outdoor adventure activities will include Nordic skiing, alpine skiing, dog sledding, ice skating, sled hockey, tubing, and snowshoeing. Here's a chance for teens to try a new experience or improve a skill - everything is included! The camps are designed for military youth with and without disabilities, giving everyone a chance to join in the fun!

What is the best part about these camps? There is only a $20 fee to cover the cost of camp mementos.  All food, lodging, lift tickets, equipment rental, and lessons are free. Transportation assistance is also available, including limited airfare funding for January sessions. Military teens with disabilities will be working with UNH therapeutic recreation professionals from Northeast Passage, and each teen may bring along a personal care attendant, if needed. All lodging and facilities are wheelchair accessible.  These exciting adventure camps are open to military teens from anywhere in the United States!

The camp session dates are as follows:

  *   January 6-9, 2012 - For teens with physical disabilities
  *   January 20-23, 2012 - For teens with cognitive disabilities
  *   January 20-23, 2012 - For teens without disabilities
  *   February 26-29, 2012 - For teens without disabilities
UNHCE 4-H Youth Development is very excited to bring these one-of-a-kind experiences to military youth!  Go to<> for more information about Northeast Passage. Visit<> for more camp information and to register.
