Naticook Summer Day Camp program offers a unique Summer Day Camp experience in the Town of Merrimack, NH. Located within Wasserman Park, the park was formerly the site of a private overnight camp which now consists of the 46 acre Wasserman Park which is situation next to 88 acres of conservation land.  In 1989, the Town of Merrimack made arrangements to purchase the camp and turned the land into a public Town park. The camp tradition continues with the Naticook Summer Day Camp program, under the direction of the Merrimack Parks & Recreation Department. Since 1993, the Naticook Day Camp has been continuously accredited by the American Camp Association.

Naticook Day Camp includes features and amenities that are normally only found in an overnight camp setting which allows the Camp to provide activities that other local Summer Day Camps do not offer. Our goal is to create a one-of-a-kind experience in a fun and safe environment that promotes self-confidence, respect, and good sportsmanship. Naticook Summer Day Camp provides Campers with the opportunity to try new activities, learn new skills and develop new friendships. Our Summer Camp is geared towards children entering Kindergarten up thru Age 14. Our Campers participate in a wide variety of activities including swimming, boating, group games, archery, drama, nature exploration, sports, arts & crafts, special events & presentations and much more!


OUR MISSION STATEMENT:  We inspire children to develop a positive self-image and to increase their social skills while building new and everlasting friendships. We create a space for campers to learn new skills and work as a group while gaining confidence in their unique abilities as individuals.
