Welcome to Camp Sangamon! We’re located on a small lake in the hills outside of Rutland, Vermont. Sangamon was founded in 1922, and we’ve based our many years of success on one fundamental philosophical difference from other camps. While most camps operate on the premise that adults should generally make decisions for children, we believe in the opposite premise - that camp is a perfect setting to give children the chance to make their own decisions. Read on to find out more about our community and our philosophy, and learn whether Sangamon is the right place for you or your son this summer.
