We live together in simple, wooden cabins and canvas structures tucked into the woods or along the lakes. There is no electricity in the cabins, no movies, televisions, computers, or recorded music. Instead, we create our own entertainment, grow some of our own food, and build our own cabins. In choosing to live simply, we build a participatory community that works, plays, and sings together.

"My child said it feels like the hard shell he has grown to get through his time in school was broken away and his soft insides are there again. I see this in him, too. He is more open, available, appreciative, and kind."
Our Vermont Summer Camps teach the skills to thrive in the natural world, while also preparing young people for day-to-day life. Campers & teens are encouraged to be themselves, say yes to challenges, and achieve more than they thought possible.
The Fair is an annual, old-time country fair done F&W style, with hand-powered rides, food, games, and concessions made by staff and campers.
