Humanities Camps

Humanities Camps

With funding support from Vermont Humanities, educators around the state develop immersive, collaborative, project-based Humanities Camps that directly meet the needs of young people in their communities. The camps aim to center student interests, empower their voices, and offer non-traditional ways to engage with the humanities as a broad and always-expanding discipline.
