Rental groups are loving camp!

Our spring was busy with a variety of groups on camp including schools and businesses. For many, they’re the first taste of camp that ignites a longing to return later in the summer. For others, these one or two day stays are a chance to celebrate the end of the school year and come together as a class.

Schools that visited camp this spring included C.P. Smith, Shelburne Community School, Mater Christi School, St. Albans City School, Flynn Elementary, Winooski Middle School, Colchester Middle School, BFA Fairfax High School, St. Albans Town School, Mater Christi, and the elementary schools from Franklin and Grand Isle Counties.

Maybe the Cleveland Cavaliers should have brought these Winooski students off the bench.

Each group focused on activities that one Mater Christi teacher said were “wholesome, and really fun.” Archery and pretzel making were popular throughout the week. Each morning, when Adam Van Vught told students about making pretzels, oohs and aahs simmered through the crowds.

It’s easy to work with if you have enough flower on your hands.

Can you tell whose is whose?








Just a little further…

Warm sand goes nicely with a chilly lake.

There’s something special about a stick and a marshmallow.
