Camp EDGE is one of dozens of camps and schools exhibiting at the 16th annual Kids VT Camp & School Fair, on Saturday, February 2, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Burlington Hilton. At the fair, representatives from each exhibitor will present detailed information about upcoming offerings, and answer questions from parents and potential campers. Our “Spotlight” series offers a sneak peek at participating programs.

It’s no surprise that the day camps hosted by the EDGE — a chain of sports and fitness facilities in the greater Burlington area — promise active, on-the-go fun. Drop your kids off at the Essex, South Burlington or Williston locations, and they’re in for a day of aqua aerobics, rock climbing, tennis and yoga.

But it isn’t all about breaking a sweat. Participants can catch their breath during arts-and-crafts sessions, music and storytelling programs, and — perhaps the biggest draw — weekly field trips. Campers might explore the artwork at Shelburne Museum, cheer from the stands at a Vermont Lake Monsters baseball game or kick back on a beach towel on the shores of Lake Champlain. Through it all, they’ll forge fast friendships, build leadership skills and gain experience being part of a team.

On a tight summer-vacation schedule? Feel free to sign your child up for “two days a week or two weeks of the summer,” says Essex camp coordinator Sarah Chamberlain. “It’s a flexible schedule.”

Camp EDGE is a state-licensed program for children in kindergarten through age 12. Find more information at edgevt.com/kids/camps.
