Summer Day Camp
Monday–Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM
July 1–August 16, 2019
Tuition: $299 per week
Rolling farm fields along the Connecticut River are the idyllic backdrop for our summer day camp at Cedar Circle Farm.
Our highly qualified educators believe that students are the most engaged and learn the best when their curiosity and inquisitiveness are not only allowed but encouraged. Explorations through the forest, adventures along the riverbank, and games between the strawberry fields will cultivate a true appreciation for the ecosystems of Vermont and farm fresh food available just miles from their homes.
Experienced staff guide students ages 6-11 through activities and learning opportunities in groups of ten or less. In addition to daily farm chores and sensory-based explorations, campers are able to choose their own activities. Some of these tasks and projects may include:
- collecting eggs from the hen house
- cooking in our cob oven
- crafting crowns with flowers from our garden
- harvesting fruits or veggies from our fields for a snack
- collecting and identifying insects
- working in teams to complete a scavenger hunt
- making ice cream from berries we hand pick
Safety, fun, and community building are the themes structuring our education programs. Our program is designed to instill a strong sense of stewardship and belonging between our students, the environment, and one another.

The main responsibility of a JC is to be an exemplary role model. We are looking for excited, responsible, and mature young adults (14+ years of age) who enjoy working with elementary-aged children and are eager to grow as a leader and mentor.
Our JC program runs all 7 weeks of Farm Camp (July 1-August 16). We are looking for JCs who are comfortable working outdoors in a farm environment and who can commit to serving all five days of at least one camp week.
We will have a mandatory Junior Counselor training session on Thursday, June 27th from 1-3 PM. All selected Junior Counselors must be able to attend this session. We will spend this time learning about the important role and expectations of our

“[My daughter] loved the fact that the entire camp took place outside. I think she most enjoyed making food and learning new songs.”
“I was very happy with the camp - he came home happy and excited every day, I really liked that he CHOSE to participate in harvesting and cooking projects, knot-tying, etc… It also warmed my heart to hear him singing camp songs in his bed at night - very very sweet.”
“On the last day of camp, he was asking to be signed up again for next year! He never complained about going and never asked to stay home.”
