Re: “Camp Little Notch

I have been going to Camp Little Notch for 6 years, when we get to go down the camp road I always get so excited! I know Ill meet some amazing people that Ill be lucky to call friends along with friends Ive already met! Not only am I so excited about the people I also love the views! The woods make me so happy because they are so beautiful. I learn things that I didnt know about myself before, and become even more independent and confident! With that I know who I am and fight for what I believe in. CLN will always have a special place in my heart. I will always remember all the kindness Ive gotten there and make sure that everyone gets that kindness too.

Re: “ECHO Camps

My son has attended Echo camps for 3 years now and has enjoyed each year. The camp counselors are calm and considerate. The camp itself is pretty low key in a good way. Children are encouraged to participate in a way that is respectful of their personalities and differences. I highly recommend this camp!

Re: “Wildflowers Studio

Both of my sons attended a week long camp. The older son was on the older end and I was worried he might not have a good time and the younger son was on the younger end. The both had a fabulous time. Both camp directors were fun, kind, and good at making the kids comfortable. Both boys asked to go back next year.

Re: “New Village Farm Camps

Our son fell in LOVE with farming due to his amazing experience at New Village Farm last summer. He has spoken about his experiences, and hopeful future experiences at this farm - almost daily - since he said good-bye to the gorgeous farmland, sweet animals, and kind, caring, experienced staff. We loved the raw, unpolished view of farming, and the safe approachable and hands-on learning the staff provided each child. We are so ever appreciative of this teaching farm, and the amazing milk/produce that they produce. We will certainly enroll our son again!

Re: “Audubon Vermont

Our 2 kids have been attending Audubon Vermont's Preschool Nature Camp and Ecology Day Camp for years. As we sit down as a family to discuss what summer programs they are interested in attending, Audubon is always at the top of the list; no small statement given the number of other great programs they have had a chance to experience! The natural classroom they learn and play in is incredibly diverse and the staff is always top notch. Highly recommended for your 3-12 year old!

Re: “Audubon Vermont

Charlie LOVES the Audobon pre school classes! We have signed up for every Friday class and Summer camp that we could since he turned 3. He calls it "hiking camp" and feels so comfortable there- and outside. We think the Audobon camps provide a fantastic opportunity for Charlie and all the kids to learn outdoors. Our 2 year old twins can't wait until they are old enough to go. Thank you to all the teachers and staff!

Re: “Audubon Vermont

The Audubon camps are wonderful, simply put. When talking about camps with our 6 1/2 year old for the coming summer, he immediately said he wanted to go back to "Coyote Camp". He did not want to leave on the last day of camp last summer! It's a beautiful setting, full of adventure and learning. The counselors are incredibly engaged, knowledgeable, fun, friendly, and attentive to the campers. It is also so great to see the full day camp option this year for preschoolers ages 4&5!

Re: “Audubon Vermont

Despite the myriad of opportunities for my kids each summer, Audubon Camp is always first-pick. From the involvement and enthusiasm from the camp counselors to the variety of educationally engaging and "fun" activities in which the children partake, i have nothing to say other than, "Bravi!" to all those that make these summer camps unforgettable. the only con--the camps fill up fast, so early registration is essential.

Re: “Audubon Vermont

We love Audubon summer camps! My kids both started going at 3 years old and this summer will be our fifth year. The staff is always great - very committed to making ecology fun and interesting for kids of all ages. My kids are still talking about last summer's camp experience and can't wait for this summer. It is always the first camp on our summer calendar.

Re: “Audubon Vermont

Great camp for preschool and school-age kids! The counselors are super knowledgeable, fun, friendly, and attentive to the campers. It's also a perfect setting for summer camp: woods, fields, beaver pond, brook, and the Huntington River to cool off on a hot day. The kids love this camp.

Re: “Audubon Vermont

This camp is the best around. The staff are professional teacher/naturlists and understand what it means to make an activity child-led. People in our community know this is a real gem.

Re: “Camp Little Notch

A truly transformative, empowering experience for girls in a magical forest. I went there for years as a girl and it shaped my life for the better. My daughter has now attended for the past 3 years and says it is where she found her confidence. A beautiful place to call her own, share with lifelong friends, and learn the real meaning of harmony.

Re: “Camp Little Notch

This camp is an exceptionally beautiful and secluded property. A gem. Camp Little Notch was a Girl Scout camp for 70 years. A group of alumni and other supporters have purchased the land and are carrying on the tradition of empowering girls and young women to be confident in themselves, aware of social justice, and able to live in harmony with nature. My daughter loved her 2 weeks. The girls determine for themselves what their time at camp will be. Free to be creative and active. Childhood memories and lifelong friends...

Re: “ECHO Camps

My son loves camp at ECHO camp because he enjoys any chance to explore science, dig into nature, and invent useful things. I love it because he learns to be a good earth steward, sharpen his scientific skills, and become involved in the Burlington's cultural community.

Re: “Talent Development Institute

Our son has attended this program two summers in a row (ages 10 and 11). He absolutely adores his time there, the classes he takes, the instructors, and getting to hang out with other bright kids. Staying in the dorms at Johnson State College makes it a pretty special, "grown up" kind of experience, but the staff have been doing this for 15 years and really know how to put together a safe and fulfilling week. -- a South Burlington mom

Re: “Hosmer Point

My son went to this camp last year for the first time. He had the time of his life and still talks about it today. He can't wait to go back this year. The Camp is very well organized and lots of fun activities. Water sports, biking, they made a pizza oven, gardening, and even feeding the animals.

Re: “Saxon Hill School

SHS has a few openings remaining in it's 2 and 4 day programs for next fall. If you are looking for an outstanding preschool experience for your little one, look no further! Saxon Hill's teachers are the best and the learning space is unique. Located in Jericho's historic district, they have access to the river, meadow, walking trails, and fabulous sledding hill in the winter.
The 4 day program is also a Vt Licensed Kindergarten if you are looking for a 1/2 day kindergarten, it is a great option.
My two boys attended SHS and loved it!!! I highly recommend SHS!!!
