Let VINS and ArtisTree encourage your child’s vibrant curiosity. Through crafts, games, stories, and outdoor adventure, campers will explore the vast and amazing creatures that occupy the smallest crevices to the largest trees. During Anybody Home?, expert naturalists and art educators will guide your child’s discovery as we explore and reflect on the natural world often hidden in plain sight: under the bark of a dead tree, below the surface of the soil, and in the highest branches of the trees.

What better way to investigate nature than blazing a trail through the forests and meadows of Vermont? Each day, campers will take a brief hike, modified for little legs, around the beautiful village of South Pomfret while learning about the different types of habitats represented. Along the way, campers will find visual clues interpreted by VINS educators which will lead them to a special surprise. Daily art projects will allow campers to reflect on their nature explorations and expand their creativity. On the last day of camp, campers will be guided along the VINS Nature Center trails on a special quest to find a mystery animal.
