The Town of Sandwich, New Hampshire, with a population exceeding 1200 is located on the shores of Squam Lake, and nestled between two major tourist regions of the Granite State - The Lakes Region and the White Mountains. It is a classic New England setting with colored forests, winding roads and rolling hills.

The fireworks in Sandwich are scheduled for Sunday, July 3rd at dusk!  Enjoy them from the Fairgrounds parking area off of Squam Lake Road, the Sandwich Central School playground, or Quimby Field.

5 DAYS OF SANDWICH CAMP! 2016   Again this year the Sandwich Conservation Commission will be sponsoring the Five-Days of Sandwich day camp for the children and grandchildren of Sandwich property owners, ages 7-14.   Three separate one-week camp sessions, Monday-Friday, are scheduled for the first three weeks of July, beginning on the 4th.  The camp will maintain many traditions of this program, now in its 34th year, while adding new energy and offerings under the guidance of new Director Adam Weeks and Assistant Director Jennifer Brady.  Campers will learn about the natural history of Sandwich and its flora and fauna, trail craft, leave-no-trace ethics, and the sustainable use of local resources as they explore the nooks and crannies of the Town.   During the Five-Days program, campers will hike and swim daily, depending on the weather conditions. Each day will offer a Sandwich-centered history and nature experience.  Campers should expect the Five Days program to be informative, physically stimulating and challenging, and, most of all, fun!   Registration is now open and registration forms are available in the Selectmen’s office or on the Town website (www.sandwichnh.org). The $40-camp fee is due upon registration; scholarships are available.  Due to the popularity of the program, spots cannot be reserved.  Please contact Catherine Graham in the Selectmen’s Office if you have any questions:  284-7701 or tos@cyberpine.net               Session I,      July 4-8     (Ages 7-10), 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.             Session II,    July 11-15  (Ages 7-10), 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.             Session III,  July 18-22  (Ages 10-14), 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. ...read more
