Merrowvista

At Merrowvista we live life differently...

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.

As we build back from the pandemic, the AYF looks forward to serving more youth in 2022 than in 2021. Merrowvista will add an additional session, offering more opportunities to experience the mission of best self and balanced living.

Session A: July 3 to July 15 (two weeks) | July 3 to 22 (three weeks)

Session B: July 24 to Aug. 12 (three weeks)

2022 Four Trails Details
The AYF is committed to offering challenging adventure-based programs that enable experiential learning. During the ongoing pandemic, our traditional Four Trails experience will be affected by supply chain limitations, transportation and travel restrictions, and the continued care of our campers’ health and safety. This season’s adventure trips  will involve hiking or canoeing, as well as service learning. As we continue to evaluate the global landscape, we will finalize specific destinations and itineraries and share this information in early 2022.

Refund Policy
If you decide the 2022 programs will not fit your camper’s needs after registration, the AYF will fully refund your registration fee and and any additional payments if you cancel on or before Feb. 11, 2022.
