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. Today most of the existing cabins and structures are still in use blending the rich history of Ogontz with some modern amenities creating an unforgettable experience.

Amazing Wedding Experience

My husband and I got married here July 31st, 2022! It was a dream come true. We wanted an all inclusive summer camp weekend with our family and friends and it surpassed all expectations. Ryan was amazing to book with, Jocelyn was extremely organized and led the culinary team to knock it out of the park and Dave was our knight in shining armor attending to our every need for the weekend.

After guests arrived and checked into their cabins, we had an amazing pig roast for the welcome dinner on Saturday night followed by a bonfire with smores. On Sunday, everyone enjoyed the property with swimming, hiking, kayaking, etc before our wedding ceremony at 3:30pm. I have received so many compliments and "BEST WEDDING EVER" from so many guests - I'm so proud! The food, venue, staff and service was unbelievable and they really gave me the opportunity to enjoy the weekend worry-free!

There were so many moving parts and everything went perfectly according to plan - I wouldn't change anything about our amazing camp wedding weekend!!

Where to even begin with how wonderful Ogontz was for our wedding weekend? I truly cannot say enough positive things and would sing their praises to anyone considering a wedding there. My husband and I were planning our wedding from California, and booked Ogontz before visiting the place in person, which was a huge leap of faith. Our decision to do so was based on our communication with Sarah at the camp, the other fantastic reviews we read about them (and the food!), and the photos we saw of other people's weddings there. Not being planners ourselves, my husband and I were never quite sure leading up to the wedding that we had covered all of the wedding details we needed to. However, our planning calls with Sarah and Michelle helped us put those fears to rest, as they cover every single detail not just of the wedding day but of the entire weekend. During the actual weekend, Ogontz staff anticipated our every need and was always three steps ahead of us. The camp is an extremely well-oiled machine when it comes to hosting weddings, and neither my husband nor I nor a single guest had to lift a finger the entire weekend. The staff were incredibly gracious and thoughtful, and Michelle and Dave made sure that everything was working like clockwork and everyone was happy and having a wonderful time. The food was delicious and plentiful, the cabins are all unique and lovely and clean, and the decorations (!!!) - the decorations are incredible! I cannot recommend having Ogontz do the decorations for you enough. They truly transformed the dining hall into an enchanted forest. There were also tons of activities for all of our guests, from young children to older adults. Swimming? Yes. Boating? Yes? Tennis, volleyball, soccer, cornhole, etc.? Yes. Bounce house?! Yes! My husband and I had a better wedding than we ever could have imagined thanks to Ogonz. We cried when we left, and can't wait to go back!

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.
