Jeffersonville, Vermont
For students entering grades 5 and 6.

A unique poetry camp that focuses on the nature around us in Vermont. Walk the nature trail, explore the woods, observe the wetland birds and animals from the lookout platform and the pond docks, learn the names of the sheep, and take refuge in our small yurt if the weather is not agreeable. Read and write poetry and make your own journals under the guidance of a Master’s level teacher with 20 years experience.

$150 per camper, materials and snacks are included. A $50 deposit is required to reserve a place in the camp. Limited to 5 participants.

Your child will not be officially registered until you receive a confirmation email from Sundog Poetry. The remaining cost of the camp is due one week prior the camp’s start date.
