Lots and Lots at Betsey Cox

Posted on

Hey, Camp Fans!

Let’s take a moment here on the Everything Summer Camp Blog today and highlight the next among the many summer camps with whom we’re proud to have developed a wonderful relationship. For today’s Summer Camp Spotlight post, we’re fixing our light to one of the few land-locked states that are still part of the eastern coast: Vermont.

Situated just east of the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Champlain, you’ll find 150 acres where Camp Betsey Cox along with her brother camp for boys, Camp Sangamon have been established for nearly the last hundred years. Each summer the camps welcome roughly a hundred girls and a hundred boys to give them a great summer camp experience.

Known as the camp with a song in its heart, Camp Betsey Cox is a singing camp. However, there’s much more to do than just sing! Enjoy Swimming, Canoeing, and Kayaking in Burr Pond. Go Horseback Riding or enjoy Backpacking Trips, Campcraft, a Ropes Course, Rock Climbing, and more. Try your hand at skills like Farming and Gardening as well as Archery and Tennis! There are plenty of team sports to play like Basketball, Rugby, Softball, Volleyball, and more. And get your dose of indoor activities with Pottery, Weaving, Woodworking, and Arts and Crafts time.

Camp Betsey Cox is equipped to provide their campers not only tons of fun, but a places to sleep and eat, and just hang out. Set up with rustic cabins that have nearby wash houses, a dining lodge, an activities center, tennis court, working farm and garden, and a swimming pond, their campgrounds are absolutely beautiful.

The camp’s wood frame cabins all have comfy canvas bunk beds, screened fireplaces, and solar lanterns for lighting after dark. There’s no electricity in any of the cabins which encourages a connection to nature. Each cabin fits eight to nine girls and is staffed with two counselors as well as a third-year leadership girl.
