ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — President Barack Obama is talking about his daughters' experience at summer camp and revealing for the first time where they spent their summer — New Hampshire.

While campaigning in New Hampshire on Saturday, Obama noted at two rallies that his daughters, Sasha and Malia, spent a month at summer camp in the state.

Obama has previously talked about his daughters going to summer camp but has not said where they went. He says Sasha and Malia enjoyed water sports, playing basketball and tennis and doing arts and crafts as well as "some ice cream" at their camp.

Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are both contesting New Hampshire, which is considered a swing state.
