VERSHARE CAMP July 30th – August 3rd, 2018
STAFFING: We thank the many volunteers from near and far who make this camp possible by offering their time to share their passions with young people as Activity Leaders! They will be assisted by Counselors and by CITs (Counselors in Training).
COSTS: The camp is free to all children. VerShare is a non-profit organization determined to enhance life in Vershire through programs such as these. We rely on donations, grants, and the help of many, many volunteers to make camp run. Tax-deductible donations to the VerShare Children’s Activity Fund are gladly accepted, especially from families who have the means to contribute, have not participated in a VerShare fundraiser, or live out of town.
REGISTRATION: 2018 Camper Registration packets will be available around Friday, April 27th! Please fill out the registration form (one form per child) and mail to the Camp Coordinator c/o VerShare, at the address on the form, postmarked by May 18th, 2018. Make sure you list several different choices for each session. Campers will be assigned to activities based on the order in which their registration forms are received and their town of residence. Campers who reside in the Westshire School towns, Vershire or West Fairlee, will be registered first, followed by other applicants. Confirmation letters will be sent around June 1st. After receiving responses, we will fill any empty spaces off the waitlist starting in mid-June. If you are registering after the due date, please call to see what activities may have openings and for which ages. Often there are ways to include more kids so please feel free to ask!
DAILY SCHEDULE: The camp day runs from 8:30a – 3:30p, with a half-day option. In addition to camp-wide circle times and tent group times, campers will participate in morning and afternoon workshops. Lunch for Chipmunks (5-7yo) is at 11:30a and for Bobcats (8-12yo) is at 12:00p. Campers will be expected to bring a bagged lunch. We hope to get enough volunteer support to continue the daily salad bar featuring local food. Campers who cannot bring a lunch for any reason will be provided with a simple one.
AGE GUIDELINES: The description of each activity includes age guidelines. While the activity has been designed with this age group in mind, the guidelines can be flexible. Call or email if you have questions. It is a long, active camp day: parents of the youngest campers are urged to consider the half-day option.
