Camp Exclamation Point provides continuity and community to underserved rural Vermont kids through a weeklong residential summer camp.

What a way to celebrate our 25th summer!  A hot air balloon glowing at night.  Three captivating storytellers.  25 years of T-shirts hanging in the dining hall.  Finding the Knights of the Round Table.  Hot summer afternoons spent on the waterfront.  Singing “Mango, Mango, Mango” and “Country Life.”  All of camp decked out in tie-dye.  A fabulous hand-made medieval carnival, with a visit by the dragon.  And no better way to remember it all than by watching the CAMP! Movie (hooray, Tony Bacon!) and the 2015 CAMP! slide show (way to go, Scott Moore!).   Check out our facebook page for pictures and more.

Camp was made possible by over 80 talented volunteer staff members who created magic for our almost 100 campers.  We were thankful for the participation of CLiF, donating books to all our campers, as they have for over a decade.   We were also honored again by the presence of three wonderful storytellers for our campfire story night – Simon BrooksOdds Bodkin, and Papa Joe  (who filled in for Angela Klinger).  A big thanks to Camp Farnsworth  in Thetford, VT, operated by the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, for their hospitality.

We are also extremely grateful to the donors who fund our program.  You can donate via the secure Paypal button below.  If you know of someone who might be able to make a major donation or of a grant we should apply for, please contact John.  Download our fundraising informational flyer here.
