The BKL camps are always some of the most memorable weeks of the year at Craftsbury, and we're sure this year will be no exception. This July 14-18 and August 11-15, skiers age 8-13 will join us daily from 9am to 3pm at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. The skiers will work hard, and play even harder!

There'll be lots of fun games, a variety of ski workouts, tons of opportunities to learn or improve skills like roller skiing, shooting with a real biathlon rifle, sculling, mountain biking, all capped by the traditional adventure race and pizza party at the end of the week. Don't miss it!

Prices:

  • Non-Members - $135 for the first child in a week of camp, $110 each additional child that week.
  • Members - $110 for the first child in a week of camp, $85 each additional child that week.

(Don't worry - multi-child discounts will be figured as part of check out)

Public registration will open on May 1. Until then, only Craftsbury Nordic Ski Club program participants can sign up. Want to join the team? Read more on the Center's website about dryland programming, and find out more about an annual membership to Craftsbury for year-round trail use, access to programming (like the Ski Club), and great opportunities like speakers, naturalist hikes, cider pressing - and discounts to the BKL camps!

We'll be putting more details here. In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact Zach Russo with any questions. See you this summer!

Sample Day of Craftsbury BKL Camp

9:00 Morning Activity - We start the day with a warm-up activity. Usually this is an ice breaker or other fun game to start us moving.
10:00 - Morning Workout - Once warmed up, we move on to more ski related activities like rollerskiing, orienteering, running, hill bounding and more.
12:00 - Lunch
12:30 - Quiet activity - We learn from videos, play low-key games or other less active pursuits. It's a bit of a break to digest, recover and get ready for the afternoon.
1:00 - Afternoon workout - We close the day with another higher energy session. We canoe, swim, try biathlon, mountain bike, or learn to scull.
3:00 - Parent Pickup - Before you know it, it's time to go home! Rest up because tomorrow will be another full day!
