New Hampton School is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Elite Hockey Camps that will bring 600+ youth nationwide to campus for five weeks of programming each summer. The campus and location offer new opportunities for the program, and New Hampton School is excited to share our school and our state-of-the-art ice arena with youth from across the country.
Founded by longtime Dartmouth College coach George Crowe, and previously hosted at Dartmouth and Norwich University, the camp sought a new location more accessible to participants and with nearby attractions for summer recreating such as those in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. In addition, New Hampton School’s ice arena, fitness facilities, residential spaces and dining services needed to host the program are on par with the camp’s high-caliber reputation.
“We are really excited about this new location. Jacobson Arena is beautiful and the comfortable, residential campus will be a great space for our campers both young and old. New Hampton has long been recognized for a strong athletic tradition and it quickly became an obvious choice for the next evolution of our program,” says Executive Director Patti Crowe. “In addition, we’re thrilled to have many of their experienced faculty join us for our summer program.”
In 2016, New Hampton School opened Jacobson Arena as the new home for its hockey programs. Jacobson is a contemporary, fully enclosed and temperature regulated hockey facility. The arena includes men’s and women’s locker rooms, a warming area and lobby overlooking the ice, and seating for 120 spectators. The space has already helped the team excel to new levels including the Women’s NEPSAC Championship led by Olympic athlete Cayla Barnes in 2017.
“This is a great partnership for New Hampton,” says Head of School Joe Williams. “With the completion of Jacobson Arena, our campus is well-suited to host a program like this, and it is a wonderful opportunity for our faculty and staff to assist programming on the ice, in the fitness center, and in the residences. It’s great visibility for our school, and we welcome the opportunity to share New Hampton with others.”
