2018 Summer Camp Schedule


Willowell camps aim to foster a sense of pride and respect for nature in youth of all ages. We are excited to present a diverse listing of Vermont summer day camps this year. Camps will bring children outdoors to play, get dirty, and learn from Willowell’s 230 acres of meadows, wetlands and forest.

This year Willowell is offering some of our “old standbys” like Jedi Training Camp, Coyote Clan Camp, and Lord of the Rings Camp. We are also excited to announce three new camps: a nature theater camp, a paper making camp, and an art and magic camp. Your children will surely come home each day tired, full of new songs, smelling of campfire, and ready to take on the world with a renewed respect for themselves, their peers, and the great outdoors!
