Summer Camp

We focus on outdoor education and exploration in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

With small group sizes and lots of individual attention during lessons and instruction, your child is sure to form lasting relationships with fellow campers and counselors. Every day is packed full of exciting, high-quality experiences that help to shape your child’s confidence, endurance, self-esteem, teamwork and appreciation for nature and the outdoors.
