Camp Sangamon is a summer camp for boys ages 9-16 set beside a beautiful lake in the hills of central Vermont, just minutes from Rutland and Killington.
Join our CIT program and help lead these young campers to create their own unique experience!
Counselors in training will be reliable for a set number of campers and learn valuable skills in leadership and responsibility.
At Camp Sangamon, our community is made up of 90 campers, 45 staff, and 30 counselors-in-training. We represent a diverse group of races, nationalities, religions, and economic backgrounds. Typically, we come from at least twenty states and ten countries. Camper ages range from 9 to 15 years. We live in cabin groups of eight campers, three staff, and often a third year high school staff trainee.
We teach all kinds of interesting things. We offer fifteen different in-camp activities, split about evenly between individual sports and crafts. We teach Archery, Horse Riding, Tennis, Mountain Biking, Swimming, Canoeing, Ropes Course, and Kayaking. We have a “pioneer” farm, with a milk cow, chickens, pigs, ducks, rabbits, and kittens. We make things in Woodshop, Rocketry, Weaving, Pottery, Silk-Screening, and Arts & Crafts. We take trips hiking, wilderness swimming, backpacking, canoeing, sailing, rock climbing, and caving.
