Building Confidence, Building Community. At Hosmer Point, campers build a sense of community in a beautiful and caring environment where boys and girls can play, explore, create life-long friendships and build self-confidence. With only 80 campers per session, and three campers for each counselor; every child is respected for who they are so they learn how to be their best selves. We take pride in creating a great first-time camp experience!
Located near Craftsbury Common, in the mountains of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, Hosmer Point offers 1, 2, 4, and 6 week sessions for ages 9 to 15, day camps for ages 5 to 8, and Wilderness Trekking and Leader In Training camps for teens. Campers direct their own schedules, choosing from a wide variety of activities including: sculling, farm and build, mountain biking, creative arts, and sports and fitness. Campers who want in-depth rowing instruction can attend our sculling camps for ages 11 to 15.
Along with our sister organization, the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Hosmer Point strives to use and teach sustainable practices and respect for our environment. Delicious farm-to-table food and an active, electronics-free lifestyle are key elements of life at camp.
Camp tuition at Hosmer Point is on a sliding scale. We believe that families will use our camp values of Generosity, Kindness, and Cooperation as they choose how much to pay, while we live by our values of Trust and Respect as we accept camp applications, and Unity as we work together to make camp possible for everyone.
We love telling others about what makes Hosmer Point special, so feel free to get in touch or watch our movie and see camp for yourself.
Hosmer Point is a non-profit American Camp Association accredited camp.
