Great experience for family bonding and a fun, peaceful, relaxing time. Do as much or as little as you like, learn new things, meet warm, friendly new people. Option if staying in the ecolodge lets you "go to camp" even if you're not the type who is up for "camping". Kids can roam with new friends and have freedom within... More

I've been going to Camp Common Ground since 2000 and I'd highly recommend it to anyone, especially families with children and/or teens. The site is beautiful and the people are warm and welcoming. The food is excellent and the programs are fun, inspirational, creative and healing!

We've gone for the family camp twice and we were there this weekend for their twentieth anniversary weekend. We are returning again this July. My kids talk about camp all year long and it has become an important part of our lives. We all love it. It's my piece of heaven on earth. We stay in the cabins. There were... More

REMEMBER: THIS IS A CAMP, NOT A HOTEL!! There is no room service, and guests are expected to clean up after selves! If you can deal with that, you re in for a treat! My son & daughter-in-law chose Common Ground for their wedding celebration. Family & friends began arriving on Friday afternoon, for a welcoming cook out and visiting.... More

We just came home from our first Lost Arts camp and it was Wonderful. A truly enriching experience for my children and myself. My boys (10,7, and 5) had such a fantastic experience that they already want to know when we are going back. The activities keep everyone occupied but not at a hare's pace, its really incredibly relaxing. I... More

Situated in a beautiful part of Vermont, this was a perfect vacation for our family. The adults loved having the morning free to dabble in all kinds of classes and activities, from dance to hikes to a volleyball game to glass blowing. The kids felt free and safe and loved being at camp with their parents. It was a chance... More

We went to Camp Common Ground for the second week of the summer. We were nervous. The last family camp we went to exhausted and drained us. We adore our kids, but hey- it's still a job right? I was risking a lot when I booked this vacation, but I still had a dream that family camp could feel like... More

I've spent two summers in a row at Camp Common Ground located in lovely, rural Vermont, and can understand why most families keep wanting to go back. It's a unique place where kids spend the mornings in Kidsville doing various age appropriate activities and their parents are free to explore dance, yoga, archery, glass bead making, hikes, tennis, and a...

I''ve taken my daughter here several years, and it's always been a wonderful positive experience. Attending their Camp Common Ground signature weeks was an exposure to art forms neither I nor my experienced artistic daughter had tried, like making sun print clothing and silk painting, for just a start. The lovely natural setting, delicious healthy foods, kindhearted people, room for... More
