Friendship. Community. Accomplishment.

Welcome to Brown Ledge Camp

Located on the banks of Lake Champlain, just a few miles away from Burlington, Vermont, Brown Ledge Camp is a residential, sleep-away camp for girls ages 10-17. For over ninety years, Brown Ledge has created a place where girls can find their passion through our Freedom Program and the choice of 18 different activities.

Tennis Program

The five clay courts and practice back-board are in constant use each season. Five full-time senior instructors are available to work with players of all levels. On court instruction is provided six days each week, mostly on an individual basis.

Watersports

Sailing, windsurfing, swimming, diving, waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking and canoeing operate simultaneously within the sight of the waterfront director. The open bay offers appropriate wind and space to the sailor, while our cove and island provide necessary protection for the other activities.

Horseback Riding

From its beginning over 90 years ago, Brown Ledge set for itself the task of really teaching horsemanship, refusing to be satisfied with the ordinary policy of merely providing an opportunity to ride.

Archery and Riflery

The shooting sports of archery and riflery remain favorites with our campers. Both ranges are places where campers can breath, focus, and relax while continuously improving.

Theatre & Dance

Each week the Brown Ledge Theatre Department achieves a degree of finesse and realism rarely found in camp dramatics. Brown Ledge recognizes that all involved in producing a play - actors and those off-stage - play a vital role.

At Brown Ledge, We’re all about:

Philosophy

We trust that girls of camper age will choose to spend their time well when in an environment that always expects the best from its community members. We believe that learning is fun and effective when a camper chooses what to do and when to do it.

Passion

It is truly wonderful to watch the enthusiasm that goes with the feeling of freedom. Since campers choose how to spend their time, everyday is an opportunity to find their passion, and in doing so, learn more about themselves.

People

“This camp was planned and built for you. From today on it is your camp as well as ours.” Our founder penned these words over sixty years ago, and they hold true today. Campers, junior counselors, senior counselors, and the directors all contribute to make BLC the special place that it is.
