Communities around New Hampshire's Franconia Notch are holding their 21st annual Celebration of Lupines. Though the festival focuses on the spiky purple wildflowers that grow in abundance across the region, flowers are just part of the event, which takes place throughout the month of June. This weekend incudes an open-air market in Sugar Hill. There will be more than 50 vendors and booth displays featuring local crafters, artisans, nonprofit groups and small businesses.
Copper Cannon Camp is tucked away in Franconia Notch on 128 acres of White Mountain National Forest. In some ways a typical overnight camp with sing-a-longs at night and archery during the day, Copper Cannon is unusual in one respect. As Sean Hurley reports, it's one of only a handful of co-ed camps in the country that's absolutely free for kids of low income families.
I'm only at Copper Cannon Camp for 30 seconds when Zach and Rob, two eleven year old boys, spot my recorder and come racing over.
