at Farm & Wilderness Camp

Vermont 2020

Due to the pandemic, no Vermont camp in 2020 or 2021. Dates for next year (2022) are September 15-24 ~ details coming in January. (The information below was written for 2020, so there will be changes.)

  • September 17-26  (9 nights)
    • We are sincerely sorry to overlap with Rosh Hashanah this year. If this is a concern for you and your family, please see our notes in the 2020 Camper Handbook Extras.
  • Tamarack Farm (at Farm & Wilderness Camp)
  • Transportation offered (for a fee)
    • from/to White River Junction (Amtrak/Greyhound) ($20 each way)
    • from/to the Burlington Airport (approximately $40 each way)
    • from/to Philadelphia and Albany ($130 one way, $215 round trip).

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, a creation circle event, closing ceremony – plus optional projects (extended workshops that span several days).  Tamarack Farm, our beautiful home at Farm and Wilderness Camp, offers a heated, light-filled lodge; a fabulous playing field for soccer, ultimate frisbee, etc.; access to Woodward Reservoir for canoeing and occasional swimming; hiking trails plus a lovely pastoral 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. There are, however, a few indoor, heated rooms available for folks who really need them and for others on a first-come first-served basis. We occasionally enjoy atypical warm weather, but our usual experience has included cool and sometimes downright cold nights.) For more, see the Farm and Wilderness website.
