The Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester, NH established Camp Fatima for Boys in 1949 and Camp Bernadette for Girls in 1953 to help campers grow in faith, learn new skills, gain confidence, build positive relationships, and take home memories that last a lifetime. The Camp Board of Directors currently seeks qualified applicants for the position of Executive Director of Camp Fatima and Camp Bernadette.
Located in the Lakes Region on Upper Suncook Lake, Camp Fatima is a 152-acre camp for boys, ages 5- 15, with a capacity of 300 campers. Camp Bernadette, a thirty-minute drive from Camp Fatima, is a 22.5-acre camp for girls, ages 5-15, located on Lake Wentworth with a capacity for 270 campers. Both camps adhere to and promote the teachings of the Catholic Church while welcoming campers of all faith traditions.
For seventy years, the mission of the camps has been to help form sound minds, souls, hearts and bodies in service to the Catholic Church. Instilling an appreciation and care for the dignity of each person and the beauty of God’s creation is woven throughout all camp activities: daily prayer, sports, challenge courses, free time, meals and special programs. The American Camp Association accredits both camps. For more information about the mission and programs of Camp Fatima and Camp Bernadette, please visit http://www.bfcamp.com/.
