Moving Minds and Muscles is back for our third year of summer of exploring and adventure. Your children will play, learn, and exercise as they explore local and regional communities through authentic place-based learning activities. If you’re looking for an active camp that keeps your child moving, this is it! Your child will be challenged to expand their mind, confidence, and physical abilities through field trips to local organizations, state parks, and outdoor recreational activity centers.


Moving Minds and Muscles is open to students entering grades sixth through eighth in the fall. Camp operates Monday-Thursday, with drop-off starting at 8:00 am and pick-up by 4:00 pm.


Sign up now! Enrollment is limited to 35 campers each week. Priority will be given to St. Johnsbury residents who register before Friday, May 19.


Please contact Ilene Dickinson at with any questions.


Week One, June 26-29: Park It! Vermont Edition

Park It! has been such a popular week in the camp that we’ve decided to split it into two weeks to share the awesomeness! Campers will spend the week hiking, swimming, and paddle boarding in the great state of Vermont! In addition to exploring our natural resources, the week will culminate with a trip to ArborTrek where campers will test their skills and leadership on the high ropes course.


Week Two, July 10-13: Going Green

New theme for 2023! Campers will spend the week exploring the world around them, the human impact on it, and the simple changes we can make to create a positive impact. Additionally, pool time and cooperative games will still be played throughout the day!


Week Three, July 17-20: Around the World in Four Days

Another new theme for 2023! Campers will “travel” around the world in four short days! Campers will learn about a new country daily through sports, food, and more! No time for jet lag during this exciting and action-packed week!


Week Four, July 24-27: Park It! New Hampshire Edition

Week One redux, with the twist of experiencing all New Hampshire has to offer! Come and explore the White Mountains with Moving Minds & Muscles! Just as in week one, a memorable trip is in the works for the final day of the week!
