Camp Farnsworth


Plan ahead for summer camp 2021 at Camp Farnsworth!

Join us in planning ahead for a great summer at Camp Farnsworth! Girls who have completed grades 1-11 are welcome to participate in programs of one or two weeks. Overnight campers love singing around the campfire and making new friends! You might swim in the pool or canoe in the lake. Share your meals together in the dining hall and play games on the lawn. What specialty would you like to explore? Build something useful in our woodshop. Become an equestrian as you learn horseback-riding skills. Do you have an eagle eye? Archery may be the sport for you! Artists can stretch their creative minds! Girl Scouts in grades 9 and up can choose to focus on simply enjoying summer camp or take on leadership opportunities like Camp Aide or CIT. Both troop camping and family camping weekends will be part of our summer camp 2021 offerings. See you at Camp Farnsworth June 25 to August 13!

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. 

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.


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.
