  • Firefly Song  (at Farm & Wilderness Camp)
  • Transportation offered (for a fee)

In Vermont we savor an extended, 8 day/9 night week. This session incorporates all the NBTSC classics – workshops, talent shows, bonding night, prom, trust circle, seeing/seen circle, and closing ceremony. Firefly Song, our home at Farm and Wilderness Camp, offers a beautiful lodge with a fireplace; access to playing fields for soccer, ultimate frisbee, etc.; a wonderful dock and waterfront access to Woodward Reservoir for canoeing and swimming; hiking trails plus a lovely pastoral gravel road to stroll along.

Accommodations are rustic – outhouses (“kybos”) rather than conventional toilets, and three-sided cabins built with summer in mind. We often enjoy warm weather, but our usual experience has also included cool and sometimes downright cold nights. For more, see the Farm and Wilderness website.

How much?
  • It’s easy to pay online through our registration portal 
    • Tier 1* ~ $1335
    • Tier 2* ~ $1580
    • Tier 3* ~ $1780
  • Or, you can set up a monthly payment plan through our registration portal. If it deducts directly from a bank account, you’ll receive a discount of approximately 2%.  (If it charges a credit card, normal tuition applies.)
  • There’s a $45 discount for paying primarily via old-school paper check or money order and following very specific guidelines. You can still pay your initial $250 deposit online, and then see our 2024 Camper and Parent Handbook for details on this option. (The Handbook is available for download as soon as you’ve registered and paid your deposit.)

*For future reference, note that tuition is $150 less (for all tiers) prior to our early registration deadline. This year the deadline was extended to April 7, but most years it is March 31.
