Drawing of the future cabin

Camelot Bunkhouse Project 2024

A core part of the MITOC community, and in particular our access to the mountains, continues to be our well-loved “Camelot” cabin, located in central New Hampshire. As you may know, Camelot was built in the 1970s (on a shoestring budget), and it is nearing the end of its useful life. Since 2013, the Outing Club has been working to build new, safe and modern sleeping quarters on the Camelot property, which will ensure that MITOC can fulfill our mission for decades to come.

MITOC partnered with Maclay Architects to design a new bunkhouse for Camelot which will be located approximately 100m from the existing cabin. The new bunkhouse will contain five bedrooms (sleeping ten persons each), a large central hallway, and a covered deck. We anticipate the cost of the new bunkhouse to be approximately $500,000.

With the design now complete, we are actively seeking donations. If you are able, please consider donating to help us hit our fundraising target in 2023. We are breaking ground on site preparation in 2023, and fundraising permitting, we will build the new bunkhouse during 2024. This project will ensure we can fulfill our mission for the next generation of MITOCers.

The Mentor/Mentee Program for Summer 2018 featured a photo competition. MITOCers were invited to submit gym and outdoor rock climbing photos with their small groups in order to foster camaraderie and showcase some of the cool climbing they got up to. Here are their photos.
