New Hampshire Highlands is held the fourth full weekend in August at the St. Methodios Faith and Heritage Center in Contoocook, NH, about 20 minutes west of Concord, NH.

This is a camp run year-round by the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston. It is set on a lake, where swimming, boating and fishing are available. In addition, there are a basketball court, volleyball court, and hiking trails on 191 acres. Housing is in modern bunkhouses with flush toilets and hot showers. Limited private and semi-private rooms with private bath are available. The large, air-conditioned dining hall also hosts the evening dances.

The camp session runs from Friday afternoon through Sunday morning, and includes five meals. Three graded classes are held on Saturday and another mixed one on Sunday morning. There's live music for all classes and the two evening dance parties. In addition, there's an evening ceilidh on Saturday, campfire sing-along on Friday and parties before dinner both evenings.

In 2007 the weekend changed name and location and at the same time became an activity of the RSCDS Boston Branch. For the previous 12 years, the weekend was known as Hillsboro Highlands and was held at Hillsboro Camp in Hillsboro.
