Camp Winning Spirit is an extended weekend for families of children with cancer. Families are welcome to participate, no matter where their child is in their cancer journey. Camp Winning Spirit is a time for whole family to run & play and have fun together. Children get to try new things in the Camp environment. Parents are able to have time together and find support from new and familiar faces who have shared similar struggles regarding pediatric cancer.


Around 20-25 Coniston staff members run the weekend. There is also a volunteer medical professional on call all weekend living in the Camp’s infirmary. New London Hospital is about 15 minutes away.

The annual Labor day weekend event is a collaboration between the Childhood Cancer Lifeline of NH and YMCA Camp Coniston that began in 1996. Camp Winning Spirit and all of its lodging, food and activities are free of charge to registered families.
