In the interest of public health, the Montshire’s building, grounds, and trails are temporarily closed until further notice.
What makes Montshire Summer Camp the best science and nature camp in the Upper Valley? The highly-trained staff, terrific programs, great facilities, and the low camper-to-staff ratio.
The majority of Montshire Summer Camps are based outdoors at Montshire’s 100-acre campus in Norwich, Vermont. We also offer programs at the Ray School and Storrs Pond in Hanover, New Hampshire and at Crossroads Academy in Lyme, New Hampshire.
Montshire Summer Camps maintain a low camper-to-instructor ratio (ranging from 4:1 for our preschool program to 6:1 for our camps for older children) ensuring individual attention is given to each camper.
Our college-aged or older staff members are well-trained and knowledgeable, with a variety of interests and experiences, and a love of working with children. Each staff member undergoes extensive training with the Montshire’s full-time science educators, and is proficient in safety and first-aid procedures.
Applications are processed in the order they are received. Programs fill quickly so register early! You will have the opportunity to become a member on the online registration form if you so wish.
A Montshire Camp T-shirt is a special memento of your child’s week at camp.
Shirts may be pre-ordered with your registration for $18.
A limited number of camp T-shirts will be available during the summer in the Museum Store for $23.99 for those who do not pre-order.
With the Extended Care Option, your child may be dropped off at the Museum as early as 8:15am and picked up as late as 5:15pm. This is supervised but unstructured play. Available only for children entering grades 1–8 and enrolled in programs held at the Montshire site.
At the Crossroads site, extended care is included in the registration fee. Drop-off may occur as early as 8am and pick-up must be by 5pm.
No extended option for preschool programs or programs at the Hanover/Ray School site.
Scholarships for Montshire Summer Camp are made possible by donors to the Montshire Auction’s “Fund a Need” program, and donors to the Montshire Fund.
