Home - Camp Sangamon, Vermont Summer Camp for boys

"At Sangamon, I get to make my own schedule, every day. Nobody tells me where I have to be and when. The freedom to choose how I spend my day gives me the freedom to be myself."

-Third Year Camper, Age 13

Camp Sangamon has Suspended Operations for 2020

We will be back and are looking forward to seeing you in 2021

On May 27th Camp Sangamon and Camp Betsey Cox announced the suspension of operations for the 2020 season. We are sad not to be able to open this summer, and wish that circumstances were different. You can see the letter here:


Thank you for your thoughts and kindness in this difficult time. If you want to reach out to us for any reason you may reach Jed at jed@campsangamon.com and Darcey at darcey@campsangamon.com. Please be well, and take care. 

Welcome to Camp Sangamon! 

We're a summer camp for boys ages 9-16 set beside a beautiful lake in the hills of central Vermont, just minutes from Rutland and Killington.

We are different. If you join us at Camp Sangamon you will take your summer into your own hands.  You choose. For yourself. Any activity you want. We don't tell you where to go, and we don't tell you what to do.
