School Vacation Camps
School is back in session but we’re counting down ‘til the bell rings for break! When class is out – CAMP IS IN with hands-on activities, awesome field trips and lots of time to play with friends! NPR’s Vacation Camp programs put a twist on your average school break with jam-packed days to keep kids moving, learning and growing. Each day, we set the tone with fun seasonal themes, dynamic games and a friendly atmosphere where kids can escape the boring day at home or day care. From first-timers, to seasoned campers, Vacation Camps are sure to WOW your kids with a unique adventure and opportunities to meet new friends from all over the Kingdom!
During the school year, camp is located in the Community Center on the ground floor of the Newport Municipal Building. With a gym upstairs, the Goodrich Library next door and a short walk to the BEST sledding hill in town, we have an ideal location. Plus, the bike path is at our doorstep which can take us to Gardner Park and neighborhood attractions like Waterfront Lanes bowling alley and the City Cinema!
All participants must have a Household Registration Form on file.
Registration for Vacation Camp opens 2-3 weeks prior to the program start date. Enrollment options include daily rates or full session packages making it the perfect fit for any family schedule. Pricing varies depending on the length of the program, but there are always discounts for those who sign up early. Residents of Newport are given priority during the first week of registration, followed by first-come, first-serve acceptance for non-residents. Space is limited. Full or partial scholarships are available to Newport residents if applied for before the Early Bird deadline.
Registrations are accepted in person or by mail at Newport Parks & Recreation, 222 Main Street, Newport VT 05855. Cash or check payment is due in full at time of registration - checks payable to Newport Parks & Recreation.
Our office is open Monday-Friday, 8:00-4:00PM.
