Kids Summer Camp on Lake Champlain

Call us biased, but we don’t think there’s a better place in the summertime than the shores of Lake Champlain. Besides the blissful scenery, there’s also oodles of outdoor fun on tap, including for the littler crowd.

Here at Basin Harbor, we’re happy to offer a range of different kids camps during the summer: each and every one of them full of the kind of wonderful great-outdoors experiences that mint lifelong memories!

Let’s take a quick look at the three summer-camp categories at Basin Harbor.

Weeklong Day Camps for Local Kids

We offer two weeklong day camps here at our lakeside resort during the summer for local children ages 4 to 12: from June 17ththrough the 21st and again from June 24th through the 28th. From STEM projects and arts-and-crafts to lake recreation and sports, these are awesome and fun-filled sessions emphasizing both learning and play—ideally at the same time!

Our Camp Basin Harbor day camps are split into three age classes: 4-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Kids bring their own lunch, swimsuit, sunscreen, and a change of clothes, and get a daily snack. Send us an email at or give us a ring at (802) 475-2311 for more info!

Kids Camp at Basin Harbor for Overnight Guests

For our overnight guests, meanwhile, we run the Basin Harbor Kids Camp from late June through Labor Day. This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to make the most of their getaway along Lake Champlain, with a smorgasbord of activities on the itinerary: from scavenger hunts, camp arts-and-crafts, and all sorts of sports to hiking, nature exploration, and fishing tournaments. The schedule includes morning camp, afternoon activities, and evening fun with dinner.

Kids Camp is offered in three age groups: Champs Camp (3-5), Harbormates (6-8), and Explorers (9-12). The camp is complimentary for guests taking advantage of the Full American or Modified American plans. Learn more and reserve a spot at (800) 622-4000!

Basin Harbor Teen Escape

Let’s face it: Teens don’t always want to spend their whole vacation hanging out with the ‘rents. Fortunately for all parties, there’s Basin Harbor Teen Escape: a program giving adolescents a rich platter of supervised activities together, from kayaking, ropes courses, and boating to dance parties, mocktail hours, and offsite field trips (including to the Lake Champlain Chocolate Factory).

Take Advantage of Kids Camps at Basin Harbor This Summer

Don’t forget you can always take advantage of private babysitting here at Basin Harbor, in case you want a little well-deserved time to yourself in our gorgeous and luxurious waterfront resort. Meanwhile, consider one of our summer camps to make a Lake Champlain escape all the more special for your kids!
