Is your camper already enrolled at Horizons for the upcoming summer? Here are the details you’ll need to know about transportation, health forms, what to pack each day, as well as other important details. If you have any questions, please contact Karen Danforth or call the office at 802-333-3450.
Getting to and from camp: Chaperoned transportation from and to Lebanon, Norwich, Thetford and Lyme will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. You may sign up for the bus service on your camp application. There will be an additional $100 charge per session, per child, for bus service ($50 for the one-week sessions). Transportation fees are due with your camp tuition. Bus stop locations and pickup/drop off times are below. Please plan to arrive at bus stops early, as the bus is on a tight schedule and cannot wait. Campers are expected to follow the bus rules. Please note that we may alter the times and locations for the one-week sessions, depending on need.
- Campion Rink: bus leaves at 8:00 am, returns approximately 5:10 pm
- Marion Cross School: bus leaves at 8:10 am, returns approximately 5:00 pm
- Lyme Elementary School: bus leaves at 8:25 am, returns approximately 4:45 pm
- Thetford Elementary School: bus leaves at 8:30 am, returns approximately 4:45 pm
Campers who are driven to and from camp should arrive between 8:30 – 8:40 am and be dropped off in the parking lot by the tennis courts. Campers should be picked up in the same location at 4:30 pm. Directions to Horizons can be found here.
If your camper has already enrolled and you would like to add the bus service, please email Karen Danforth.
Final Friday: On the last Friday of each session, transportation will not be provided in the afternoon. Parents are invited to join us at 3:30 pm to meet counselors, tour the facility and share a brief program. Dismissal will be at 4:30 pm.
Overnight Option: During our two-week sessions, 3rd through 7th grade campers ready to experience an overnight at camp are invited to join us for a cookout, campfire and singing during the second week of camp. Breakfast will be served in the morning and campers will be ready for a full day of camp. Eligible campers will receive a form early in the first week of camp about the overnight. Please discuss this opportunity with your camper and decide together if he or she is ready to spend the night. There is no extra charge for this option. Please note: The 7th grade graduates leave camp for their overnight program. If, for some reason, your child does not wish to attend this trip, there is no “in camp” program for them that day. (1st session overnight date: Wednesday, July 5th. 2nd session overnight date: Tuesday, July 18th. 3rd session overnight date: Tuesday, August 1st.)
Horizons Open House: If you would like to visit Horizons before camp begins, please join us on Friday, June 23rd at 3:30 pm for a brief tour and a chance to meet Horizons Counselors.
