Summer Session 2020 Update

on April 24, 2020 By Hillary Kramer | summer COVID-19
We have prepared an amazing on-campus summer session full of fun, healthy connections, and learning.  This is set to run from July 6 to August 13.  We have planned activities on our campus (academics and credit recovery, art, crafts, cooking and baking, gardening, bee keeping, hikes, swimming, boating and more) and throughout Vermont and New England (camping, fishing, an amusement park, festivals).  While our strong preference is to have Summer Session our beautiful campus, we are not able to make that decision alone.  We will be looking to the CDC and the Governor of Vermont, as well as to best practices, to determine whether our on-campus summer program will happen. We will need to hear that it is safe and prudent to bring students, coming from many states across our country, onto campus.  We hope to have more clarity by the end of May or early June.

Wiffle Fest is a Tournament with Heart!

on July 25, 2019 By CJ Spirito | summer
Wiffle Fest 2019 was our 22nd annual gathering and it was a big success. Thirty-two teams of 2-3 players each, ranging in ages and skill levels spent the day playing on a comfortably sunny and breezy Saturday at the end of June. The teams competed in the “World Series” with Quinn Wardwell and Alex Leamon winning the Majors Division and Isaac and Michael Wood-Lewis winning the Minors Division. Although these teams had each played before, both were first time Champions at Wiffle Fest.  The play was competitive and also filled with good sportsmanship and lively banter.

August and Everything After: End of Summer Session

on August 11, 2017 By Molly Huddle Coffey | summer
Summer Session has gone by in a blur of road trips, night swimming, and ice cream cones. Students are packing up and preparing to head home for a few weeks before the school year begins. For our last week of summer session, students experimented with the 3-D printer, becoming more familiar with the technology as well as practicing some math skills. We also visited the Lake Champlain Maritime museum and had the opportunity to row across the lake to New York in some antique boats.
