When not on the Gundalow, campers are based in Prescott Park and at Creek Farm in Portmouth.  Creek Farm is about a 5 minute drive from Prescott Park and is protected by the Society for the Protection of NH Forests.  Two weeks prior to camp, you will receive a schedule for the week detailing where your camper will be dropped off and picked up each day.  Several of our camps for older campers includes additional travel to other areas around the Piscataqua Region.
