At Merrowvista we live life differently…
Our days are simpler. We challenge often but have more fun. The outdoors is our home. We work together to create a community where individuals are respected, and where our values guide our actions. We gain confidence. We share. We have fun.
Set on over 600 acres in the pristine Ossipee Mountains of New Hampshire, Merrowvista draws you into a life that is rustic, uncomplicated, and filled with excitement. Trails lead through the forest to mountain peaks just waiting to be explored. Dan Hole Pond, a crystal clear lake, is the hub of waterfront activities. This beautiful setting provides the perfect backdrop to discover what it means to be my own self, at my very best, all the time!
The AYF mission is the foundation for all we do. Programs are intentionally designed to encourage all to stretch beyond what is comfortable to see what is possible, to allow participants to discover more about their unique capacities, and to practice putting their own best into action in big and small ways. Our staff, whom we call youth development professionals, facilitate these discoveries in fun and engaging ways, and then encourage participants to put their new knowledge into action back at home.
Merrowvista operates year-round, with Community & School Programs (CSP) serving children, families and adults from neighboring communities and distant cities.
Merrowvista’s Summer Camp offer elementary through high school age campers the chance to discover and develop new strengths through residential and adventure trip programs.
