I've spent two summers in a row at Camp Common Ground located in lovely, rural Vermont, and can understand why most families keep wanting to go back. It's a unique place where kids spend the mornings in Kidsville doing various age appropriate activities and their parents are free to explore dance, yoga, archery, glass bead making, hikes, tennis, and a...

I''ve taken my daughter here several years, and it's always been a wonderful positive experience. Attending their Camp Common Ground signature weeks was an exposure to art forms neither I nor my experienced artistic daughter had tried, like making sun print clothing and silk painting, for just a start. The lovely natural setting, delicious healthy foods, kindhearted people, room for...

This summer I took my 2 sons and spent a week at Camp Common Ground. I had never been there before and didn't know anyone who had been, so it was a bit of a leap of faith for us. But boy, did that the leap pay off! We met so many amazing people and felt right at home from...

My daughter and I have attended Chinese Culture camp at Common Ground Center for 4 years. Even though we're only there for a few days each year, it always feels like coming home. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. The fresh, mostly locally grown and vegetarian food is delicious and plentiful. My daughter loves swimming in the pond and...

I wasn't there for the standard experience, but instead was a guest at a weekend wedding. We stayed in "twin south", a two-person cabin. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and just the right amount of space for two. I'm not much for "camping" and I was totally great with all of the accommodations. We were able to check...

This camp is situated in the heart of Vermont, and as such, has myriad Vermonty outdoor activities. Kids are separated from adults for the beginning of the day and kids do kid-like activities and parents can optionally do adulty things like non-verbal communication, glass bead blowing, guitar lessons, improv comedy, nature walks, yoga, etc. The rest of the day is...

It's not a hotel. It's a camp where you sleep in cabins or tents. The facilities are good. The location is beautiful. The staff, campers and programs are fantastic!

This is not really a hotel, but rather a rustic resort, where one can explore many arts and crafts, yoga, music, the great outdoors, and the various surrounding towns. Burliogton is about a 40-minute drive away, perfect for an afternoon trip with friends. The accomodations are quaint, but entirely appropriate for the setting of the camp. The food is excellent;...
