Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

My son has been to every one of William's Shelburne chess camps over the last four years. He loves them, would not miss them and is looking forward to this year's camp in July. William is a great teacher in part because he's such a great player but more so because he is able to make learning chess a lot of fun. He really relates to young players.

My son's one disappointment is that William only comes to Vermont one week a year. My one disappointment is that my son now regularly beats me in chess.

Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

Both my daughter and son attended William's chess camps in past years. William is a great instructor. He is patient and clear to explain from fundamentals to advanced strategies. Moreover he makes the camp a place full of fun. It is also a good place for kids to make new friends.

Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

Our son has participated in Wills camp for years. One year, our niece from Wisconsin came too. Our son has tons of fun and often medals in state chess tournaments.

Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

William is a great teacher, and our boys always look forward to Dynamic Chess camps. They have a lot of fun, they learn new tactics and strategies, and it keeps them at the top of their game. Highly recommended.

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: “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: “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: “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: “Stern Center for Language and Learning

Often resources available to parents tend to be limited, so I am thrilled that the Stern Center offers trainings and workshops tailored to parents who are eager to learn more about their children's learning needs. If you are eager to learn more about your child's individual learning style, check out the offerings at the Stern Center.

Re: “Mater Christi School

Mater Christi has been great for my daughters. While it retains a small school atmosphere, it also provides most of the opportunities found at larger schools: drama, band, sports, and Odyssey of the Mind, to name just a few. My girls love the bands, including jazz, symphony, and even a marching band for the Kid's Day parade. Academically, the middle school faculty really connects with the students. The separate writing and literature classes has been great for my older daughter. The science program is also excellent, providing lots of hands-on experience. Overall, my wife and I couldn't be happier.

Re: “Saxon Hill Summer Camps

Saxon Hill School has a wide variety of summer camps available for kids ages 3-9. There really is something for everyone! My son loved going to Saxon Hill School summer camps. His day was busy exploring the river, painting, doing crafts, running around the meadow with friends and enjoying all that SHS has to offer. I would highly recommend Saxon hill summer camps!

Re: “Wingspan Studio

Wonderful, creative program, caring teacher, small groups. Take advantage of having a 'real' working artist instruct your children this summer. Flexible schedule and varied offerings!

Re: “Mater Christi School

This is a wonderful school! Small class sizes, rigorous academics, caring teachers and community. We switched from one of the "highly acclaimed" public schools that had turned out to be a disappointment on many levels. I am thrilled with this school and so are my kids. They are happier, calmer, better behaved and getting a better education. I am so glad that we made this change!
