Frequently asked questions
What is Camp DREAM?
Camp DREAM is a rustic, residential, overnight
summer camp located on 50 acres of land by
Metcalf Pond in Fletcher, VT, about an hour
northeast of Burlington. Campers sleep in “lean-
to” cabins, explore the woods, eat delicious food,
and watch crazy skits around the campfire, all
under the supervision of DREAM staff. Since
2004, over a thousand DREAM youth have
attended Camp DREAM.
Why should my child or teen go?
A session spent at Camp DREAM will:
• Increase campers’ confidence, leadership
skills, and trust.
• Connect campers to new friends from
DREAM programs in Vermont, Boston, and
Philadelphia; we’re all in this together!
• Give campers a sense of the powerful
potential of the outdoors; whether it’s a
space for adventure or a space for quiet and
calm, they can shape their own needs.
• For campers who attend year over year,
they are more likely to stay involved with
their DREAM programs, take summer jobs in
DREAM, and graduate from high school.
What is the cost?
Camp DREAM is FREE for every
eligible youth in DREAM.
Located at: 1618 Taylor Rd, East Fairfield, VT 05448
