Kamp Iwannahavfun to Begin on June 22
St. Johnsbury Academy and the St. Johnsbury Recreation Department announced this week that Kamp Iwannahavfun will begin as scheduled on June 22, with some changes. The program, now in its 14th year, will be held on the St. Johnsbury Academy campus but will now serve area youth entering grades 1- 6 in the fall. The camp will run from 8:00 to 12:30 each day. Breakfast and lunch will be served.
Each week will feature a fun mix of games, activities, hands-on art and STEM projects, and swimming at the Academy pool.
According to Director of Recreational Programs Joe Fox, “For nearly 15 years, Kamp Iwannahavfun has been the highlight of area children’s summers and a valuable resource for working parents. While planning for “Kamp” is normally a year-round process, our staff has worked harder than ever for the past several months to do everything in our power to provide local children with a safe, fun, and quality experience this summer that meets CDC and State guidelines. While Kamp may operate in a slightly different manner this summer, many of the games, activities, crafts, and songs, as well as Kamp traditions, will remain. We will also have exclusive access to the St. Johnsbury Academy pool, which is just awesome! We have several new exceptional staff this year, all bringing new energy and enthusiasm to the program. After months of lockdown, we are even more super excited to get this program up and running.”
There will be five sessions, beginning June 22. Each session will be limited to 60 campers. Staff will follow strict CDC and State of Vermont guidelines.
