Across Vermont, kids are packing their swimsuits, sleeping bags, and mosquito repellant and heading off to summer camp. Vermont is home to a wide variety of camps, ranging from week-long day camps to month-long residential camps.
Peter Hare is the Director at Camp Keewaydin in Salisbury. Jon Kuypers is the President of the Vermont Camp Association, and Director at Camp Abnaki in North Hero. They spoke with VPR’s Jane Lindholm about the amazing array of camp experiences available to kids in Vermont, how camps have changed over the years, and what kids can learn from the experience today.
