Up at Flying Cloud, our program emphasizes the importance of not just living on the landscape but connecting with it. One of my favorite ways to do that when I’m at home is tracking. By tracking, we can get an idea of what animals we’re sharing our spaces with, and in what ways they make […]
As the cook at Saltash Mountain Camp, I have lots of experience making plans for yummy, healthy food. When cooking at camp for 60, 100, or 200 people, menu planning is essential. It allows me to shop for food efficiently and ensures that I have a balanced menu. The same is true when cooking at […]

Acres of gardens are planted each spring and tended by campers during the summer. We raise dairy cows, pigs, sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens, and ducks. Our camp kitchens use our organic, fresh produce throughout the growing season.

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.

At F&W, we design and provide age-appropriate curricula that: nurtures a camper’s sense of self and community identity; promotes each child’s comfort in socializing with people of varied backgrounds; fosters critical thought about bias, and cultivates a child’s ability to stand up in the face of bias.

"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.
