For almost 100 years Lochearn has been a place that girls like to call home. One of the most important things for you to know is that Lochearn is a very positive, loving, and welcoming place. New girls are instantly drawn into the Lochearn circle and made to feel welcomed from the moment they arrive.
As a community, Lochearn promotes kindness and consideration. Cliques and meanness are just not a part of our summer community. At Lochearn, everyone has something special to give and to gain from her time at camp, and the qualities that make her unique are embraced and encouraged. We hope that you will choose to be part of our community of goodness where it is "Cool to be Kind!"
Lochearn offers over 40 activities in these main areas: performing arts, studio arts, land sports, water sports, fitness, English riding, leadership training, community service, and outdoor adventure. This wide array of offerings is extensive and diverse allowing each girl to try new activities and discover and enhance her passions. Each Lochearn girl and her family designs her individual schedule.
Lochearn is a teaching camp, offering our 80 staff members training in teaching, coaching and counseling. All of Lochearn’s 40 plus activities offer progressive skill development. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced level classes enable girls to return year after year and continue to build on their skills, confidence, and self-esteem.
Lochearn is located in the small Vermont village of Post Mills, Vermont (20 minutes from Hanover, NH, home of Dartmouth College, and approximately 2 ½ hours from Boston, MA). It is situated on two sheltered coves along the banks of unspoiled Lake Fairlee. The camp is separated from the main road by a half-mile long, private drive. This unique setting offers beauty, serenity, and a safe and secure environment for our campers and staff.
