Press Release Summary = Waterville Valley, NH -- Waterville Valley, the region\'s
most family-friendly resort and recreation area, has announced its 2007 Day Camp
Program. With weekly themes, age-appropriate activities, and the natural and
cultural resources of Waterville Valley to draw on, this camp promises to provide
kids with the summer of a lifetime.

Press Release Body = Children may attend Waterville Valley\'s day camp for a day, a
week, or the entire summer. Vacationers and residents are welcome, and there\'s no
need to register in advance--registration occurs daily on a first-come, first-served
basis. That means kids can have a fun-filled day at camp while mom and dad take a
hike, play golf, or just enjoy some time to themselves. (Registrations are accepted
for those who like to plan ahead.)

The day camp program welcomes children aged 4 to 12 for adventures in outdoor
exploration, cooking, games, and crafts. For children ages 4 to 6 there\'s WINGS
(Waterville Instruction in Nature and Games), a hands-on program ideal for kids with
lots of energy. Children aged 7 to 9 will SOAR (Summer Outdoor Adventures in
Recreation) through a variety of outdoor excursions such as swimming, hiking,
canoeing, and organized games. PEAK (Positive Environmental Activities for Kids)
will lead kids aged 10 to 12 on adventures in a variety of natural areas in the
southern White Mountains, from hiking to remote swimming holes to kayaking on
Corcoran's Pond, along with unique cooking and crafts.

This summer, each week\'s activities will revolve around themes that include Pirate
Week, Hero's Week (on July 4), Sports Week, Animal Week, Curiosity Week, and more.
Half-day specialty camps are also available for children with a special interest in
soccer, karate, science, or acting. Other day camp add-ons include before and after
camp care, swim lessons, field trips, and transportation.

All day camp programs run Monday to Friday for a full 10 weeks, from June 25 to
August 31, 2007, 9 AM to 4 PM. Activities will take place at the Waterville Valley
recreation center and at locations around the valley. Half day options are available
for the WINGS and SOAR programs.

In addition to its day camp program, Waterville Valley\'s recreation department
offers a full slate of activities for children and adults, including bingo, ice
cream socials, sports of all kinds, yoga, cooking, crafts, and more. The center\'s
\"open gym\" program provides a cool place to play on a hot summer day, and a
multipurpose room hosts events on rainy days. There\'s even theater under the stars,
with Shakespeare in the Valley presenting the bard\'s works against the backdrop of
the granite mountains. \"This place gets a lot of use,\" says Stephanie Gardner,
Waterville\'s recreation director.

The recreation department will also host a number of special community events for
all ages. On June 30th, it\'s Family Play Day, with traditional fun including a
Fireman's BBQ, watermelon toss, giant obstacle course and a pie-eating contest. Paws
on Packard's Field on July 19 features events especially for dogs and their people,
and a Community Lau with tiki torches, live music and good food will light up the
valley on August 21.

This summer, Waterville Valley is the place to be for family fun and recreation. For
