About Bridge School Camps

At Bridge School Summer Camp, you can expect the same devotion to creativity, student choice and community that Bridge School is known for during the school year!

Bridge School Summer Camp is open to all — both Bridge School students and non Bridge students!

Program Details

Bridge School Summer Camp is a holistic summer camp experience for rising 1st through rising 7th grader children. Register for one week, or register for all seven! All weeks of camp include a fun and balanced approach to the day; blending crafts with outdoor free play, energetic group games, music and storytelling. And of course, we enjoy eating together–all campers please bring a sack lunch, snack and water bottle.

Each week there will be a theme for camp and activities, learning, and goals will center around that theme. We believe strongly in giving kids agency in their day, and know by experience that this is the key to campers having a great day at Bridge Summer Camp. We will provide the campers will lots of fun and engaging choices surrounding the camp theme and from there the kids by into their day and their creative energies.

Summer Camp Staff

Kristopher Perkins, Summer Camp Director
My name is Kris Perkins and I am excited to be serving as the Camp Director at Bridge School this summer. I have worked as a Special Educator in Vermont schools for the past 9 years. I have many fond memories of attending summer camps as a child. I look forward to getting to know all of you soon. When I’m not working, I’m a dad to 4 kids and a fur dad to 4 cats. Music is my passion and I enjoy being outside, going for walks, hiking, and appreciating all the beautiful scenery that Vermont has to offer. 

We are still looking for camp staff! Email with cover letter and resume.
