Wanakee Staff

Wanakee is located in the central New Hampshire, along the shore of Lake Pemigewasset, in the town of Meredith.

We are a Christian adventure camp and retreat center providing eight weeks of summer camp programming to children, youth, and adults, as well as events year-round. We emphasize small groups designed to further growth in mind, body, soul and strength.

Our rural location and 227 acres of forest, fields, shorefront, and winding stone walls provide the perfect place to enjoy all that camping has to offer: wake up to singing birds and fall asleep to the hoot of an owl. Enjoy a beautiful sunset. Challenge yourself on the high ropes course or by climbing our 32 foot climbing wall.

Each summer, over 400 campers live in a Christian community, swim in a spring-fed lake, enjoy the best food, and make friends that will last a lifetime. Summer programming is supported by 22 staff and over 60 volunteers.

Our Homestead Retreat, a modern log cabin, hosts our year-round retreat program. Please be in-touch to rent this space for your youth group, family, staff training, or ski weekend.

We look forward to welcoming you on Upper New Hampton Road!
