Director’s Letter

Welcome to Betsey Cox!

The Camp with The Song In Its Heart

Founded in 1953, by Jean Smith Davies and her husband Charles Davies, Betsey Cox remains a family business. We were excited to celebrate our 68th summer this past season. Camp Betsey Cox is a dynamic camp community. While many staff and campers return year after year, new members of the camp community are welcome to add their imagination and energy to our group.

Betsey Cox is a camp for young women growing up in a global world. Daily, each girl creates her own schedule  with well-trained staff to offer guidance when needed. Campers take responsibility for their own lives in ways which they may never have experienced before. Each girl contributes to the work in the community by taking turns with all-camp jobs in the cabin, dining hall, and the garden.

Betsey Cox provides fun, growth and skills, all in a beautiful Vermont setting.  The people and the sense of extended family draw us back to each other year after year. Our staff and campers represent many countries, and they contribute multiple talents and perspectives on growing up and living with others.

This community offers an opportunity for growth that is fun, unique and of life-long value. Betsey Cox is an important part of many lives, and I invite you to make it part of yours!
