Youth Recreation Camp Licensing Program

The NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) licenses youth recreation camps. The licensing program does not evaluate the camp curriculum but does address a broad range of health and safety issues.

A "youth recreation camp (YRC)" is defined as a program that operates for at least 10 days per license year for the purpose of providing recreational opportunities, or a combination of recreation and instruction, to 10 or more youth per day, at a place which is continuously or periodically used for such purposes. The term includes residence camps and seasonal and year-round day camps.
