Happy Thanksgiving!

A song, and things Camp is grateful for!

We are thinking of our camp family as we gather together to celebrate the season. We send our very best wishes to you and yours!

There’s an old hymn that many New England folks sing at Thanksgiving time.  If we were all together in the lodge, we would learn it together.  Here, with a few Betsey Cox edits, is the song.  See if you can find the tune and learn it at home!


Come, you thankful people come.

Sing a song of harvest home.

All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.

Earth, our mother, doth provide, for our needs to be supplied.

Come together, one and all!

Sing a song of harvest home.

And here is a baker’s dozen of camp “gratefuls”.  We are grateful that:

  • -our community includes people from all around the country and the world.
  • -that our community assumes kindness and practices empathy and civility.
  • -that we have a great deal of fun
  • -that our special corner of Vermont is beautiful with woods, meadows and a pond
  • -that we can join in with our neighbors to do good work in the world
  • -that we eat terrific food
  • -that we grow our own food for our lavish salad bar
  • -that we have horses, sheep, goats, poultry, kittens, pigs and calves in our community
  • -that we participate in weekly community meetings where we can share our thoughts
  • -that we live close to nature in rustic cabins
  • -that our lodge has flags representing the countries from which we have people
  • -that our flagpole flies the earth flag and a flag of all flags
  • -that we can leave our cell phones behind for a while
