Kurn Hattin Homes Summer Program Line-Up
July 11, 2013-August 9, 2013
A home and school for children who are at-risk or in need, Kurn Hattin Homes for Children in Westminster, Vermont serves students on a year-round basis. Because many students do not have home environments that allow them to return during the summer vacation period, they remain on campus for our summer program and participate in a wide variety of educational and recreational activities.
Kurn Hattin’s summer program line-up offers something for everyone, from working on the farm, to learning traditional handicrafts, such as needlework and quilting, to dance and basketball camps, to horseback riding, camping, and swimming. For many students who come to Kurn Hattin from urban environments, it is the first time they have the opportunity to participate in these types of activities.
Additional special events include a talent show, a concert by the Yankee Male Chorus, and field trips to Clark’s Trading Post in Lincoln. N.H., Magic Forest in Lake George N.Y., and Billings Farm and Museum in Woodstock, Vermont.
The following are upcoming Summer Program photo ops:
