Summer Rec Program
Let the fun begin! School's out and it's time to kick off the ultimate summer vacation in the Northeast Kingdom! Newport's Summer Rec Program brings back all the long-lost favorites like biking, fishing, arts & crafts, swimming and field games. Every day at camp is a new adventure where kids can build lasting memories with friends new and old. At Rec, we strive to create a fun and friendly atmosphere in everything we do. Our staff is certified in CPR, AED, First Aid and carefully chosen based on their excellent leadership qualities, positive attitude and ability to CREATE FUN. Your kids will remember them for a lifetime!
From first-timers to seasoned campers, local or visiting, we've got something for EVERYONE. Prouty Beach is the perfect summer location on the shore of Lake Memphremagog, surrounded by several amenities. Our days are filled with outings on the bike path, to the library and neighboring parks providing a unique adventure every day! Want to know what a day at camp is like? Click here!
Biking, Fishing and Camp Traditions
Fishing and biking are summer past times every child should experience and at camp we practice them weekly! Many of our kids graduate from training wheels and catch their very first fish while at camp! Anything is possible with the support of friends and an encouraging staff. Throughout the summer, children learn to master these lifetime skills and will love coming to camp on fishing and bike days!
Theme weeks like Color Wars, Field Day (bounce houses), and our annual Camp-out will become fast favorites as we explore traditions found only at summer camp. These crowd favorites and create the memories that keep campers coming back each and every year. Below are some photos of some of our favorite moments at camp...

A NOTE ABOUT COVID-19
Below is a tentative schedule for field trips, theme weeks and special camp days, but pre-planning is extremely difficult at this time. Please do not enroll solely based on the tentative activity schedule, as things are subject to change.
It’s also important to know that we will be taking precautions as required by the guidelines set forth by the Vermont Department of Health, Agency of Education and Department for Children & Families to protect against COVID-19. These steps will be outlined in a waiver during check-out.
