Important information on attending our weekends is below, including the required paperwork.  Please read this information carefully! 


Registration is Required for Work Days

You can come for the whole weekend or just Saturday; please let us know when you’re coming and how long you plan to stay. Your registration allows us to prepare for work projects and food.  There is no fee for these weekends, but donations are appreciated! To register email Tivvi Pare, or call 603-545-9660 

Age Restriction

In order to keep everyone safe, youth must be 16 or older and accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Background Check

 Background checks and Voluntary Disclosure Statements are required for all participants 18 years old and older whenever under 18-year-old campers are present. Please check with camp before coming to see if any 16- or 17-year-olds will be attending. Horton Center will absorb the cost of the background check but will gladly take a donation to help with this cost.  Download the background check form here, then send it to 140 Sheep Davis Rd. Pembroke, NH 03275.  Only one background check is needed for the entire summer, so if you sign up for more than one event, you only need to do this once. Participants also need to submit a Voluntary Disclosure Statement, and the appropriate Health Forms (see below for links). 

No alcohol or illegal drugs

All events at Horton Center are completely drug and alcohol free. Please don’t even have these in your vehicle. 


Individuals under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must be supervised at all times. Adults may share in supervision responsibilities, but at least one adult must be present. In addition, No adult is to be alone with a minor, with the exception of parents /legal Guardians with their children. If you are with somebody else’s child, be sure there are at least three people present. This is for everyone’s safety. 

Medical Needs

There is no nurse on duty during work weekends.  Adults are responsible for their own health care and for the care of the minors they bring with them. In the event of an emergency participants will be brought by ambulance or arranged ride to the Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin, NH. Please be advised it is over a half an hour from Horton Center to the hospital.  


During work events at Horton Center, adults may keep medications (prescription or non prescription) but they must be locked up at all times. Adults should also keep medications (locked up at all times) of any minors they have brought with them. We ask that you be discreet and keep medications out of sight. 

Health Forms

Health Forms are required for everyone. Individuals 16-17 years must have parents’ and doctor’s signatures. Adults need to fill out an adult health form (no doctor’s signature required). Adult forms can be downloaded, or you can fill one out when you arrive at camp.
