History

Ogontz White Mountain Camp started back in 1850 when Chestnut Street Female Seminary opened their doors in Philadelphia. Enrollment boomed and the school needed a new home with more space. Jay Cooke of Elkins Park, Pennsylvania rented his land to the school and renamed his mansion after a dear friend, Chief Ogontz, a Sandusky Indian. Chestnut Street Female Seminary became known as Ogontz School for Girls. In 1912, principal Abby Sutherland opened a summer camp in northern New Hampshire as a summer extension of the program in Pennsylvania. The two projects eventually separated and Ogontz Camp began to function as an independant camp in 1923.

    We can’t say enough about Ogontz, the magic of the place, the staff, and our wedding.
    My husband and I always wanted a camp wedding, where everyone could come together for a holiday weekend. We previously attended a wedding at Ogontz and didn’t look any further. When was the last wedding you went to a wedding that you vividly remember the food and felt like you were on vacation? That’s Ogontz.
    We had an easy and thorough planning process with Ogontz and the staff is relaxed and confident because they do what they do so well. You should be relaxed too. The hardest part about planning a wedding at Ogontz was the RSVPs from our guests and all the questions about housing. Rest assured- we had several guests stay at a hotel down the road who still hung out at camp.
    During our time at camp, we planned a yoga class, hiking, trivia night, manicure/pedicure stations, and Zumba. People went swimming, took out canoes, or just sat and visited in the Adirondack chairs. We stocked the fridge with beer/wine and everyone helped themselves. As many guests said over the weekend- “it’s like we are on vacation at your wedding.”
    We had 7 glorious meals at Ogontz. From fresh bread to homemade jams, bbq, and ice cream sandwiches, you will not get a better product at your wedding. The cheese plate alone is enough to cry over. Again, a wedding at Ogontz allows for you to really share meals with your guests and for quality time together. We went from 35 people the first night to 90 the second, and 115 for the wedding. It was a perfect mix of a small intimate wedding and larger event.
    The staff at Ogontz is what makes the experience. They truly care about you, your family, and your guests. From knowing the guests with dietary restrictions by name, to impeccable groundskeeping, to setting up the bonfire, spraying for mosquitos, to food presentation, or setting off fireworks with enthusiasm, they set the tone for what will be one of the best weekends of your life.

    We are so happy we selected Ogontz. We got married Aug 2014, a couple in mid thirties. Worked with Sarah and Andrew who were great. We chose ogontz partly because of rave reviews we heard about the food, decorations, and area, and that they could do the cooking right there so we didn't have to find caterers, and the food would be fresh prepared, local, organic. It didn't disappoint! When Andrew started describing to us how he'd make the food our mouths started watering, and on the day of, they came through: just wow, we can't imagine better food. You want really good food for your wedding, and they just nailed it. Same thing for decor - we shared our photos pinterest, and again it was awesome, thank goodness one less thing to worry about, I don't know if we would have done it any different. All was perfectly organized, no big hiccups, so we could just enjoy the special day, these guys are pros.

    We were originally concerned that the accommodation for ~250 people would be too much (too many empty spaces), but it turned out we wanted to really only have about 2 people per cabin instead of the maximum four, so with our 100-person wedding we basically filled the place up. We didn't need/use the new big concert hall they recently built.
