About our camp
Enthusiasm and freedom lie at the heart of everything they do at Brown Ledge Camp, a residential camp for girls ages 10-17. The camp, founded back in 1927 by Brown Ledge, is located in Northern Vermont, at the Lake Champlain – eight miles away from Vermont’s largest city Burlington. This provides an important benefit of being close to a large hospital and medical school.
In four or eight weeks, girls have the chance to open the doors to self-discovery and self-realization. Each cabin houses 4-5 girls. Counselors do not live with girls in the cabins, but they share evening duties and live nearby to provide assistance and supervision as needed.
In the large dining hall everything is designed for family-style gatherings. Girls are served well-balanced meals, and the camp staff has also taken care of specific diet needs.
Camp programs & activities
Freedom of Choice implies that activities run throughout each day, and campers can join the events without any scheduling or a sign-up – anytime they want. The only requirement is to stick to the chosen activity for the next five days.
During each activity, girls are guided by counselors and make sure provided experience matches girls’ skills level and learning pace. Activities this camp offers include: horseback riding, watersports (including sailing, windsurfing, swimming, diving, waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking and canoeing), tennis, archery and riflery, arts and crafts (drawing, enameling, puppeteering, sewing), theater arts, to name a few.
