Hiking at Hard'ack!

We hope the end of the school year is going well for you!  We're getting ready for a fun, busy summer at Day Camp! 
We're delighted to have so many friends join us this summer - in fact, so many that camp is pretty much full for the entire summer.  
We're asking families to take a look at their registrations and make sure that they're accurate.  If any changes need to be made please contact us asap (if you've scheduled a vacation, decided to take Fridays off, etc) either reply email or at the office 802-524-1971 by Tuesday 5/31/22.
After June 1, 2022 we will not be able to make adjustments (credit) to your account if your child is unable to attend camp.  
If new dates open up we will email families to let them know because we know many of you were hoping for a few more days.
Any questions - just give us a call at the number above.


St. Albans Recreation Day Camp – Summer 2022
NO CAMP July 4th, 2022
Camp Director:  Chloe Lumbra
St.  Albans Recreation Department Day Camp is a fun and safe option for families this summer.  Our location at Hard'ack Recreation Area allows for lots of outdoor fun including fields, miles of trails, disc golf, gaga ball, and fantastic arts and crafts projects and more with a fun energetic staff to make your child's summer unforgettable. This year the St. Albans City  Pool will be completed at Hard'ack to double the fun!  And let's face it, we could all use some fun right about now! 
Outdoors!  We will spend the better part of everyday outdoors whenever possible.  If it's a drizzly day we'll be outside (at least for a bit) so be sure to pack a rain coat and mud boots if the weather looks like we'll need it. 
When it's a total wash out - we'll catch a movie in the Lodge, visit Collins Perley
 Sports & Fitness Center or City Hall Auditorium to burn off a little energy.  

2022 Information:
Hours – 7:30am-4:30pm  (Early drop off and late pick up are available)
Location-  Hard'ack Recreation Area 
Registration – St. Albans Recreation Department prides itself in being responsive to the needs of our families.  We allow families to pick and choose days they’d like to attend (minimum of 2 per week)  throughout the summer.  We welcome part time campers as well as full time.   
Outside –
It’s always been a goal of our camp to be outside as much as possible We plan to eat and play outdoors whenever we can.

If Covid has taught us anything - it's that sick people need to stay home, and that means sick with any illness.  No sick campers will be allowed at camp.  We're expecting that parents will commit to knowing how their kids are feeling and not sending them when they're sick.

At Drop Off –  We trust that families will be aware of their child's health and not send a sick child to camp.  
Healthy children and staff with the following symptoms/conditions may attend programming
Allergy symptoms (with no fever) that cause coughing and clear runny nose may stay if they have medically diagnosed allergies and provide confirmation from their doctor.
Well-controlled, mild asthma
HygieneCampers will wash hands upon arrival at camp, before and after using the bathroom, before and after eating, before and after activities and throughout the day as deemed necessary.   
FoodCamp will continue to participate in the Federal Summer Lunch Program supplying a morning snack and lunch. The start date will be announced soon and we'll pass that info on to families.  Each child should bring a water bottle and bottles should be cleaned every night.  Camper lunch bags will not be able to be stored in a refrigerator so be sure to include ice packs if necessary.   Camp is PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE.  Please keep this in mind when packing your child’s lunch.
Backpacks & Stuff – Each camper should bring swim suit, towel, sunscreen & water bottle. Please do not send more “stuff” than fits in your camper’s back pack.  Please consider a swim shirt & swim hat for campers that are especially sensitive to the sun.  Be sure to supply your child with sunscreen and put their name on it. We will supervise sunscreen application showing kids how to apply to their face, arms and neck etc.  
We reserve the right to make changes at any time Our primary goal is health and safety.
