Craftsbury Outdoor Center

You may have heard of us as the first rowing camp in North America, or perhaps as the most consistent snow in the east, but even without participating in one of our programs, you can share the same great Craftsbury setting, excellent food and facilities. We've hosted professional groups seeking natural beauty and tranquility, family reunions large and small, and families and individuals who just want to enjoy our unrivaled grounds and comfortable lodging. And now we've reorganized as a non-profit to ensure that the Craftsbury experience will be around for generations to come. Read our mission or find more information on lodging, dining and activities.

We're excited to have Julbo Eyewear on board as a sponsor of the Craftsbury Marathon, and we thank them for their support!

The 120-year-old Julbo brand is built on a rich history in alpine-mountaineering and high-altitude glacier exploration optics. Jules Baud, the founder of Julbo, began making sunglasses when crystal hunters, who earned a living by looking for crystals, asked Baud to develop sunglasses to help them better explore the Chamonix Valley.

Today, Julbo is an emerging multi-sport eyewear company that makes eyewear for elite outdoor athletes as well as mainstream users. Julbo is fully committed to creating a line of sunglasses with world-renowned optical quality melded with a bold sense of style. Julbo USA is based in nearby Williston, Vermont.
