Farm & Wilderness Camps: Timberlake for Boys

Plymouth, VT

Overview

Since 1939, Timberlake has offered boys a summer of challenging adventures and fun in the woods. Boys live in lakeside cabins with seven or eight other boys their age and two counselors.

The whole camp sings favorite songs after breakfast, and then sits together in Silent Meeting before going off for the morning activity. Activity areas include Outdoor Living Skills, Barns & Gardens, Waterfront (including Red Cross Swim levels), Work Projects, and Creative Arts. Over three or four mornings, a boy might learn the basic canoe paddle strokes, while in the afternoons he helps nail siding on a new cabin, take a short hike to a nearby pond for a swim, and bake bread for dinner. In the evening, everyone might be running through the woods during a rowdy all-camp game or roasting marshmallows at a cabin cookout. Boys choose one or more trips over the summer, from overnight hiking trips for the less experienced to hikes covering more than ten miles a day.
