Camp Sangamon is located on a small lake in the hills outside of Rutland, Vermont. Sangamon was founded in 1922, and have based many years of success on one fundamental philosophical difference from other camps. While most camps operate on the premise that adults should generally make decisions for children, we believe in the opposite premise - that camp is a perfect setting to give children the chance to make their own decisions.

Summer Horse Camps for Kids and Teens at a Price You Can Afford
Send your child to savor summer in Vermont at our friendly, individualized, horseback riding camp. We emphasize not just riding, but building a holistic relationship with each horse. Our horse camps also encourage personal growth for each camper. Learning new skills and connecting with people and animals builds self esteem, and for many of our students horsemanship becomes a driving interest for many years. We limit the number of campers to preserve this individualized approach.
We offer both day camp, and girls-only overnight horse camp to kids of all ages and every level of riding ability, including the first-time beginner. Overnight camp is available as a one week program and up to five weeks. We offer affordable rates for overnight camp and day camp that make Kimberly Farms accessible to all families. If you bring a friend or sibling you will also receive a discount! Camps fill fast so call us today.
Camp Killooleet is a summer camp for boys and girls ages 9 - 14, is nestled into a beautiful corner of the Green Mountain National Forest in Hancock, Vermont. For over 70 years it has been owned and run by educators who know and listen to children. We build a supportive community with a balance of sports and arts activities.
Killooleet is a 'traditional camp' (varied activities, full season, weekly hikes and two overnight trips) that goes its own way in a non-traditional manner. The directors state, 'We want every camper to find activities they particularly enjoy and specialize in them. A child works hardest in areas he/she delights in. Camp is geared so that the artist can still play on a softball team and the avid basketball player can still ride horses or have the lead in a dramatic production. Camp is non-competitive and highly individual. Strong cabin groups are built through working and playing together. Trust is extended and minimal defenses are needed. Vitality explodes. Almost all campers return until they're too old to return. This is their second family, where they find themselves.
First time campers: June 29 - July 30, 2016 with an option to stay full season June 29 through August 21, 2016.
