In Vermont we savor an extended, 8 day/9 night week. This session incorporates all the NBTSC classics – workshops, talent shows, bonding night, prom, trust circle, seeing/seen circle, and closing ceremony. Firefly Song, our home at Farm and Wilderness Camp, offers a beautiful lodge with a fireplace; access to playing fields for soccer, ultimate frisbee, etc.; a wonderful dock and waterfront access to Woodward Reservoir for canoeing and swimming; hiking trails plus a lovely pastoral gravel road to stroll along.

Accommodations are rustic – outhouses (“kybos”) rather than conventional toilets, and three-sided cabins built with summer in mind. We often enjoy warm weather, but our usual experience has also included cool and sometimes downright cold nights.
