Joy. Confidence. Respite.

Welcome to Camp Sno-Mo in New Hampshire!

You’ll find that at Easterseals New Hampshire, we don’t talk about “special needs” very much. That’s because we’ve been welcoming all youth with disabilities for over 30 years. Our residential camp keeps children safe and healthy with a low camper/staff ratio and around-the-clock supervision. Counselors know that each camper is unique, and they are ready to help each camper enjoy their adventure.

We are pleased to offer a full summer of camping for 2024.

We offer eight weeks of camping for ages 11-21, and one week of camping for adults over the age of 21.

2024 Registration Costs

These prices include a nonrefundable registration fee of $500 for New Hampshire Resident Campers per session selected and $750 for Non-New Hampshire Resident Campers per session selected, due at registration. 

Scholarships are available and information can be selected to be sent to you during registration.

Up to $750 in camp fees may be covered by the NH Department of Education and their ReKindling Curiosity Program.

    Hunter’s story of discovery and success

    For Stephanie Jarrach of Long Island, NY, it only took a few minutes on the phone with Easterseals New Hampshire’s Camp Sno-Mo director Christopher Ellis to decide it would be the right fit for her son, 18-year-old Hunter Pugliese. “It was Chris who really kind of sold me on everything,” Stephanie says. “I said, ‘If we’re even half as successful as this man has led me to believe we can be, then it will be a great summer.’”
