The Camp St J experience continues well after sundown.
Following each evening’s meal, additional opportunities to connect with peers and explore the Northeast Kingdom await. (After you are finished studying, of course.)
Perhaps you prefer an evening game of bocce on the lawn, or the challenge of competing in a trivia contest (humanities versus math and sciences – these games get heated!). Maybe you are seeking enlightenment or cultural enrichment found in evening excursions to Milarepa Buddhist Monastery, Catamount Arts, and Unadilla Theater. Or you might simply want to unwind at our social hour, or taste some of Vermont and New Hampshire’s renowned craft beers at Shilling Beer Company or the Kingdom Taproom.
