We will update this plan as needed before the summer if new guidance is given for summer camps. COVID-19 safety guidance for summer camps is changing rapidly, almost daily, and we are aiming to continue to make updates to our plan as quickly as we can. Please keep checking back for updated versions before your arrival to camp. If you have questions that cannot be answered from this guide, please don’t hesitate to contact our admissions department directly by calling 802-422-3761, email at admissions@farmandwilderness.org or use our website live chat feature M-F between 8:30AM – 3:30 PM.

NOTE: summer camps must follow specialized guidance for “Operating Youth and Summer Camps” and “Childcare and Out-of-School Programs” in accordance with several sets of recommendations from several organizations such as the State of Vermont, CDC, American Camp Association. Because we are living in a congregate setting and caring for other peoples’ children, please take into consideration that some of the recent state and national guidance for individuals and households may not be the same guidance for summer camp organizations (ex. masking, social distancing, etc).
