at Farm & Wilderness Camp

Vermont 2023

  • August 31-September 9   (9 nights)
  • Firefly Song  (at Farm & Wilderness Camp)
  • Transportation offered (for a fee)
    • from/to White River Junction (Amtrak/Greyhound) ($30 each way)

In Vermont we savor an extended, 8 day/9 night week. This session incorporates all the NBTSC classics – workshops, talent shows, bonding night, prom, 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 rather than conventional toilets, and three-sided cabins built with summer in mind. (If you sign up, you’ll probably get sick of us reminding you to BRING WARM STUFF. We sometimes enjoy atypically warm weather, but our usual experience has included cool and sometimes downright cold nights.) For more, see the Farm and Wilderness website.
