Indian Brook

3½ or seven-week sessions, with a two-week option for new 9 or 10-year-old campers Woodward Reservoir in Plymouth, Vermont

Indian Brook is a place for girls to find friendship, adventure, and support in a non-competitive environment. Girls live in open cabins with seven or eight other girls their age and two counselors. The whole camp sings favorite songs after breakfast, then sits together in Silent Meeting before going off for morning activities. Activity areas include Creative Arts, Outdoor Living skills, Rocks and Ropes, Work Projects (carpentry), Barns & Gardens, and the Waterfront.

Throughout the week, a girl might be learning new skills or exploring established interests, whether practicing guitar, tying complex climbing knots, operating the circular saw, or beading with a group of friends. All campers go on at least one trip during the summer, ranging from a two-night hiking trip to a ten-day wilderness trip. Evenings in camp might find everyone running through the woods in an all-camp game, performing skits at the talent night, or thoughtfully discussing a social issue with their age group.

Older campers have an opportunity to apprentice in an activity area, taking on responsibility for a significant project. F&W also offers a Counselor In Training Program; follow this link for more details.

At Indian Brook, each girl’s individual strengths, skills and interests are noticed and encouraged. A summer at IB is a time for girls to develop their voice, learn their own value, and have days filled with friends and fun.
