A Day Camp Experience Unlike Any Other in the Upper Valley

Located on Lake Fairlee with 150 acres of inviting fields, woodlands, and trails, Horizons is a day camp for girls and boys who live or vacation in the Upper Valley of the Connecticut River in Vermont and New Hampshire.

  • Friendly, fun, and highly-qualified staff
  • New friendships and a strong, caring community
  • Hot lunches and snacks provided daily
  • Transportation is available, too!

Horizons’ campers benefit from the same rich array of activities and high-caliber staff that children at the renowned sleep-away camps of the Aloha Foundation enjoy—then go home to bed at night—tired and happy.

Horizons offers one- and two-week camp sessions each summer from late June through mid-August (Monday through Friday. 8:45am-4:30pm). Campers, who range from kindergarten to 7th grade, may enroll in any number of sessions (our final session is only open to PreK-4th graders). Children entering Kindergarten in the fall are invited to attend our final session of camp.

Healthy lunches and snacks are provided each day at camp.

Bus transportation: We normally offer bus service to/from Lebanon/Hanover, Norwich, Lyme, and Thetford. More information regarding these options will be available in the spring, as we work through COVID-related restrictions.

2021 COVID update: We are planning a full and fun summer for our campers, with some modifications in place to keep everyone safe and healthy – temperature checks, frequent handwashing, mealtime changes, and social distancing. Some changes will be mandated by the State of Vermont, while other decisions will be made in consultation with general, state, and local experts in the fields of medicine and public health. Campers are likely to remain with their cohort through the day and they will still be guided by our experienced counselors through a wide range of activities, from swimming and boating to archery and arts & crafts. We are confident in our ability to help campers have a wonderful experience this summer. While we hope to offer the same bus options as previous summers, we may need to make modifications due to COVID restrictions. A short survey in the camp application will help us determine how many families require bus service to attend. Families will be emailed when we have more information to share and updates will be posted on our website.
