Method of registration

Online Registration

Our online registration is the fastest method of completing your child’s summer plans with us and also saves a ton of paper! The process is a bit different depending on if you are a new family or a returning family. Allow about 15- 30 minutes on your computer to complete this process. You may always stop mid-way and come back after you have created your account.

Read below about how registration works for you or just click on the “Register” button to the left to get started.

For New Families

If you are new to Farm & Wilderness, you will need to create a new account login with us and set up a profile for your family as well as your camper(s). This is the profile we use during the summer to maintain contact with you and your family.

Please make sure that you are any and all contact information you have for you as well as your camper. Your account can be edited or added to at any time, so please keep track of your username and password.

For Returning Families

If you have ever registered yourself or a member of your family online for any Farm and Wilderness program in the past, you already have an existing account with us. Remember that even if you are registering a new camper, you will still use the same account as you have in the past as you will only need to add this new person to your existing profile. If you do not remember your account login information, please call us at 802-422-3761 to retrieve it.

When you login to register for a new program, please make sure all of your contact information is up to date, correct any incorrect items, or add any missing information before you add any new program or people.

For All Families

For any family creating an account or using an existing account, please be aware that your registration for a camp program is only finalized when the following items are complete:

  • All basic contact information is listed (address, phone, email) for both the Guardian(s) and Camper(s)
  • An emergency contact is listed for the Camper(s) that is NOT also listed as a Guardian
  • Camper Profile (must see that it is checked green)
  • Health History (must see that it is checked green)
  • We that have received minimum payment (either the appropriate deposit amount or full tuition)
  • Please be aware that our system will not let you make a payment by credit card until the above items are complete
  • If you wish to pay by method other than credit card, please be aware that your registration will not be finalized until such payment is received.

financial aid information

Farm & Wilderness has long been committed to making camp affordable for as many children as possible. Camperships (our term for financial aid) provide some assistance to families for whom payment of the full tuition is not possible. We offer this for both overnight and day camps. More information about campership is on our financial aid page.

  • A campership application must be accompanied by a completed registration form, either online or paper.
  • Campership deadline is Jan. 15 for overnight camps and May 25 for Barn Day Camp.
  • Instead of a $500 registration deposit, those who are applying for campership need to send a smaller,refundable deposit of $250.
