Camp PSU

Consider spending a day, a few days, or more learning with others like yourself who want to explore the physical and intellectual opportunities of northern New Hampshire in the lovely setting of the Plymouth State University campus.

Camp PSU is an exciting new program for individuals and families. Days will be filled with learning and activities: enjoy discussions about the history and art of the region, learn a bit about nature photography or get in touch with your inner author, enjoy guided excursions to nearby Squam Lakes Natural Science Center or famous Mount Washington for a science exploration, and more!

Our programs are designed for enthusiastic learners who would just like to “know more”. Interactions with our PSU faculty instructors will be engaging and deeply informative, in a dynamic but informal atmosphere. Sessions are held on Fridays throughout the summer.

You will find an opportunity that is perfect for you and your family!

Summer Heritage Programs

In a continuing effort to contribute to the academic and cultural life of Plymouth State University and the White Mountain Region, the Center for Rural Partnerships has developed the Summer Heritage Programs (SHP). The Heritage Programs will create opportunities to expand graduate education and to promote professional development and regional partnerships, largely through the utilization of existing programs. The Institute will draw on and integrate the resources of two present institutions, the Graduate School and the Frost School, and one new one, the Summer Teacher’s Institute. It will also collaborate with the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance.

By its very nature the term heritage connotes a distinct sense of place, a region that unites diverse human and natural resources and facilitates the exploration of these resources. The SHP encourages individuals, families, community leaders, and organizations to investigate the dynamic environment of the White Mountains through various programs on the region’s rich history, unique traditions, variegated scenic landscape, and cultural resources. Programing is designed to be experiential, flexible, and interactive and utilizes both campus and adjunct faculty. Both credit and non-credit options are available in an interdisciplinary context.
