Nestled in the hills of the Northeast Kingdom, Camp Wapanacki is a four-season camp for both adults and families. The camp is comprised of 250 acres of woodland, plus a 25 acre, private lake. There are miles of trails to explore, perfect for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, and walking and biking in the summer.
The camp was founded in 1938 by the New York Institute for Special Education as a camp for blind and visually impaired children. It was the first such camp in the United States, and operated as such for over 50 years. In the 1980s, the camp was bought by the Girl Scouts of America. The girl scouts operated the camp until 2009, when the camp was put up for sale.
In 2014, two college friends, one from Boston and one from New York, purchased the camp with a plan to make the camp new again – comfortable, inviting, and fit for old and young. Remote enough to get away, but modern enough to stay connected.
Whether you have fond memories of going to Camp as a child or want to escape to the wilderness, Wapanacki has something for everyone. Cabins are freshly renovated with modern amenities and comfortable setups. Canvas tents are available for the summer season as well for those looking for a more "rustic" experience.
We can't wait to have you!
