The HP Way
Community: Attracting families from diverse backgrounds, Hosmer Point enrolls fewer than 100 campers per session. Our campers and staff represent an increasingly broad spectrum of economic backgrounds, family structures, racial, ethnic, and gender identities. Our small size and emphasis on inclusion builds a strong community, founded on respect for one another.
Activity Choices: Campers set their own schedule for each day, fostering independence and teaching decision making and time management skills.
Sliding Scale Tuition: Families pay what they can afford so camp is a possibility for all children.
Unplugged Campus: No electronics at camp! We promote connecting face-to-face.
Staff: All staff complete criminal background checks and meet our high standards for personal conduct and training. Staff build personal connections with campers through activities and cabin life. A 3:1 camper-to-staff ratio helps each child receive individual attention.
Farm-to-Table Meals: Local and fresh! We accommodate many dietary restrictions.
Sustainability and Stewardship: We use and teach earth-friendly practices.
A Place Called Home
Hosmer Point, located in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, is a place campers call home. Situated lake-side, the camp provides enriching experiences that foster self-confidence and send young people out into the world better equipped to build community and lead positive change.
Each day is filled with play, work, and exploration which lead to life-long friendships. Our staff are positive role models who teach campers to engage, contribute, and challenge themselves. At camp we live by and instill our community values: Cooperation, Generosity, Kindness, Respect, Trust, and Unity.
As part of a non-profit foundation with the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, we use sustainable practices and teach environmental stewardship.
Above all, campers are the heart of our community. To learn more, watch our camp movie and explore the information in the "Camps" menu above, or give us a call to find out how you, too, can call Hosmer Point home!
