Preparing Conant Lodge for the Next 100 Years:

We Need Your Participation!


The 100-year-old Conant Lodge is at the heart of the Cold River Camp experience that we cherish so much. The CRC Committee has approved the East Design to meet the future needs of Camp while maintaining an affordable outdoor experience for all. Groundbreaking is planned for autumn 2021. The Conant Lodge Campaign seeks your help now to raise the final one-third of the total $1.2 million needed for the project.

Many members of the CRC community have generously pledged leadership gifts ranging from $100 to $150,000, adding up to $900K pledged so far with $300K to go. We are illustrating our progress as a unique journey from Camp to the summit of S. Baldface. We have already passed through the woods and the Shelter and we are emerging above the Ledges. We need you to help us pass the Knob and move on to the Summit!

Many states are relaxing their travel restrictions as case numbers improve and vaccination efforts proceed. Details will vary by state.

The state of NH and AMC are revising policy on common areas in lodging. This is a rapidly changing, in-progress effort. The potential for easing restrictions on the use of common spaces exists, and will continue to be evaluated throughout the season.
