Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

This was an excellent experience for my son. He took part for the first time last summer and even though he was new and didn't know anybody, he was easily welcomed into the group. William is a fun person and a very knowledgeable chess teacher. My son loved the chess lessons and games, but also the outside times playing games like Capture the Flag. This was the highlight of the summer for him, and we are planning on doing it again.

Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

The perfect mix of fun, and skill and a little competition. My son definitely learned a lot and it solidified his love of the game!

Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

My son has participated in a number of these camps and loved them. William is a great teacher, but also makes sure there's lots of fun involved for everyone regardless of their skill level.

Re: “Arabesque Etc Dance

Martina not only has an amazing dance studio with Arabesque Etc., she has created a dance family that nurtures, challenges and loves every one of its members. My daughter is 9.5 and is in her fourth year with the studio. She has loved every minute of it, especially the opportunities for performance - from the Nutcracker Tea before Christmas to the Themed Showcases to the incredible story shows. It's incredible watching her learn and grow as a dancer and a young lady with the unconditional support and caring of Martina, her amazing instructors and the older dancers. Martina's excellence in dance and theater combined with her HUGE heart and love of dance makes Arabesque the ideal home for dancers of all levels. My daughter has loved the camps in the summer and is very much looking forward to camp this summer. Don't miss the show this year (2018) on June 2nd at Colchester High based on Mary Poppins!

Re: “Arabesque Etc Dance

My 15 year old daughter has been dancing with Arabesque, Etc. for the past several (3-4) years. It has been amazing for her on so many levels both mentally and physically. She is able to participate in several different genres of dance and the high level of teaching combined with the family friendly atmosphere is exactly what we are looking for. Great community, amazing shows, top notch!

Re: “Arabesque Etc Dance

If your kid loves to dance, this is the studio for you. A variety of styles of dance, offered at convenient times. Local kids can take the bus straight to the studio. Before or after childcare can often be arranged. My daughter started taking ballet when she was 13 and this has been such a terrific community for her.

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: “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: “Mansfield Cooperative School

My child has attended the Mansfield Cooperative for two years. In that time, a lot has changed for her. She went from hating school and dragging her feet every morning, to loving school and being sad when snow days are called. She has learned organizational skills and continues to become a better and better self-motivated, problem solver. Her skills in writing have been celebrated and encouraged and her struggles have also been acknowledged and strategies to help her make progress have been successful. I am so glad that we made the choice to have her attend this school.

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: “Wingspan Studio

Wingspan Studio's summer programming for youth is enriching and inspiring. The way art, nature and education are incorporated into the exciting, creative curriculum is unique and significant -- there are not many other places, I believe, where a child may benefit from this sort of experiential creativity and inspiration. Highly recommend!

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!
