Camp Farnsworth

For over a century Camp Farnsworth has been a place where girls have come to build lasting friendships, develop confidence and independence, and experience the thrill of the outdoors. Celebrate 110 years of Camp Farnsworth with us on August 3, 2019! It will be a weekend birthday celebration full of memories, fun, and activities.

Specialty programs available at Camp Farnsworth extend the summer experience for campers such as riding and caring for horses, developing outdoor skills, mountain biking, climbing, sailing, rafting and more! Resident campers can also choose two-week overnight treks (grades 8-10). There is sure to be something for all campers to enjoy.

Camp Abenaki-Mascoma is now Farnsworth Day Camp! A great way to discover Camp Farnsworth is to explore it for the day! Enjoy this short week of daytime fun at camp. Girls get to swim, boat, explore the Hollow Log nature center, participate in crafts, and enjoy lunch in the Camp Farnsworth dining hall.

FarnsworthBanner

Join us to celebrate Camp Farnsworth's history and 110th anniversary with your Girl Scout sisters and camp alums at this fun weekend event. Tour camp, participate in a flag ceremony, take a canoe ride, swim in the pool, or try out the new Camp Farnsworth History Patch program! Includes activities for all ages, ceremonies to celebrate the history of camp, and decade photo sessions for those who attended camp in the past. Enjoy meals in the dining hall and a campfire to close out the day.


Accommodations:

Our camp offers a variety of sleeping quarters that allow campers to be close to nature but still have some of the comforts of home. Depending on their program/session, campers may stay in small or large cabins, treehouses, tentalows, or canvas tents on platforms.  All units include beds and mattresses, storage shelves, and have fire circles for campfires and s'mores.  Camp counselors stay close by in tents or small cabins of their own. All units have nearby bathrooms and access two central shower houses.


Facilities:

Camp Farnsworth is located in Thetford, VT on over 240 acres of beautiful, tranquil forest, meadows, fields and a 50-acre lake.  Our property includes playing fields, lakefront, rec hall, health center, woodworking shop, pottery building, arts & crafts center, challenge course, climbing tower, a newly renovated dining hall, and our new pool and bunkhouse.
