Great experience for pre-med students:
Summer Camp Counselors needed for 9 weeks in the Heart of the Green Mountains.
Camp Thorpe is a summer camp for children and adults with special health needs. They offer experiences for individuals challenged physically, mentally, and emotionally. Campers range in age from 10 to 80!
Camp Thorpe has both the Mountain Reach (10-21 years old) campus for children and the Pine Haven (21 and up) campus for adults.
The ratio of campers to counselors is three to one.
Camp Thorpe was founded in 1927 by Reverend Walter Thorpe as the Vermont Camp for Crippled Children. They were aware that summer camp was an option only for the privileged few; for the most part, summer camps in Vermont were attended by well-to-do children from other states. There were no summer camps for underprivileged or handicapped children.
Thorpe’s concept involved providing a positive camping experience for children challenged with handicapping conditions. The camp’s original philosophy created a support system to offer partial or full ‘camperships’ for families needing financial assistance. Yearly fund raising, to this day, has helped raise funds to cover camperships and operating costs.
Camp Thorpe’s tradition, created among the natural elements of the Vermont Green Mountains, intends to provide children and adults with fun, adventurous camping experiences regardless of special need or financial status.
