Elementary Summer Camp

Late June through the first week in August

During the summer months, the Center offers a six-week summer camp also known as The Barnes World Academy. In collaboration with the Burlington School District and Burlington Parks & Recreation, SHCC offers children entering 1st grade through entering 5th grade a wonderful summer packed with activity. Campers spend the mornings doing craft projects and playing indoor and outdoor games. After meeting at 12:00 p.m. for lunch, campers spend fun-filled days at area beaches or dive into other community activities like strawberry picking, hiking up Mt Philo, and visiting places like the Ethan Allen Homestead, Ben & Jerry’s factory, and Echo Leahy Center at the waterfront. On rainy days, the blues are kept away with indoor activities: arts and crafts, board games, sports, free-play, and group games.

Children register for the full 6-week camp (no partial enrollment), which starts the last week in June and ends the first week in August. Camp quarters are located at the Sustainability Academy at Lawrence Barnes (North Street). There are two camp options: Full Day (8:15am-5:00pm), or Half Day (12:00pm-5:00pm). Camp enrollment is limited to 65 children.
