During summer months, Mount Snow Child Care transitions into a summer camp style program. Summer Child Care is located in our welcoming, state-licensed facility that provides age appropriate activities while we explore our indoor and outdoor environments. Children are placed in age-appropriate classrooms as they engage in hands-on activities including arts and crafts, hiking, biking, water play, and exploring Mount Snow’s natural environments, all located in the Green Mountain National Forest.

For children entering 1st grade or above, check out Outdoor Exploration Camp.
