    For over 40 years, the Vermont Recreation & Parks Association has hosted Summerama, a camp-specific training program for new and seasoned staff. The purpose of this workshop is to supplement in-house counselor orientations with a robust schedule of hands-on education sessions led by regional camp professionals. Summerama is the first step toward training your counselors, initiating a strong team bond for the summer and developing resilient staff.

    Bring Your Training to the Next Level...This summer's Summerama schedule includes sessions covering a variety of camp topics. With a mix of interactive and informational, long and short time blocks, and material suited for all experience levels, every member of your staff can customize their training with selections that peak their interest.

    Lasting Benefits... Joining Summerama and the VRPA family will open your organization up to a vast network of opportunity. Connecting with neighboring camps is a great way to share resources and provide a sense of belonging in the greater camp community. Your staff will leave Summerama feeling empowered and eager to kick off a great season!

    Making the Most of Summerama...For best results, we recommend splitting up to cover more ground. Debriefing as a team during your regularly-scheduled orientation following the event is a great way to share information and nurture team bonding.


    We hope you and your staff will join us for this full-day training program.   

    Early-Bird Pricing Available until May 25th!

    Still deciding whether or not to register? Here are some of the things that         exhibitors had to say after last year's conference...

                                   “The Vermont Recreation Conference exceeded our expectations.                                                           Our company was so well received and we got so much foot traffic that we are                      gearing up for lots of new potential business in Vermont. Well worth the trip for us!”

                                     “This conference is very well run and a wonderful opportunity to meet                                     with current clients in a less formal  environment.”

                         “The VT Recreation Conference is one of the best delegate interactive conferences                                       in New England.  The location and value are well worth attending and exhibiting each year.                      I look forward to this conference and participating as a vendor every year.”
