About the Forestry Summer Camp
The UNH Forestry summer camp program was begun in 1924 by Prof. Clark Stevens to include practical experience as a part of forestry education. The first summer camp was held in East Brighton, Vermont. After operating in several locations, the camp was permanently established in 1929 on a site in the Passaconaway Valley of the White Mountains where it continued until 1964. Forestry students were required to attend the eight-week summer camp immediately following their junior year. Activities at camp included game management, forest mapping and surveying, timber surveying and wildlife ecology problems.
For several years, a student was chosen to keep a daily journal of that year's camp activities, both scholarly and social. The journal was then published and distributed to all campers and faculty of the forestry department.
