What is Camp Like?

Camp Seneb is for kids with skeletal dysplasia and their siblings. Camp is one week long, and serves youth ages 8 through 16. Our camp is in New Hampshire on our own beautiful 116-acre lakefront property, about 1 hour and 45 minutes from Boston.


Please note: For summer 2020, Camp Seneb will be hosting free online games get-togethers for youth with skeletal dysplasia. Email nick@harborcamps.org to find out more.
Our camp typically operates as follows:
  • We have three meals together as an entire camp, four structured activity periods, two free periods, and an all-camp evening activity
  • Campers sign up for daytime activities prior to camp and stay within age-appropriate groups
  • Campers sleep in cabins with others of the same age group
  • Campers are under the direct care of camp counselors at all times; a nurse is on grounds 24 hours a day. Some counselors are members of the LP community and some are average height.
  • Campers interact the old fashioned way - no video games, Internet, or cell phones. Music players are allowed.
  • We operate as a typical overnight camp; we do not focus on our differences, we just let our kids be kids!

Location

Our camp is located in New Hampshire, about 1 hr 45 minutes from Boston, and 4 hours from NYC. Due to the sensitive nature of some of our camp populations, we do not disclose the exact location except to enrolled families.

Accommodations

Campers stay in cabins with up to 7 other campers and 2 counselors, depending on the size of the cabin. Cabins are rustic inside with bunk beds and space to "hang out" in the middle. Restrooms and showers are nearby, and are completely rebuilt for summer 2018.  

Accessibility 

Several of our cabins are wheelchair accessible, as are our bathrooms/showers, dining hall, waterfront, health center, and most activity areas. We have the ability to transport campers by golf cart or car if they need access between areas at camp. Our camp is outfitted with outlets in each cabin for CPAP/other devices & step stools to keep things within easy reach for everyone.   Click here to see Our Facilities
