In addition to the fees above there is also a non-refundable $50 registration fee per family. If you wish to stay in a cabin, the Eco-Lodge, or reserve a tent platform, an additional fee applies. (Read more below.)The cost of Camp Common Ground includes tenting in the field, meals, program fees, and most materials. While you are free to purchase items in the camp store, you will find very little need to reach for your wallet during your week at family camp.
All our camp fees are on a sliding scale, so please pay what you feel you can afford within the range we've set up. You may select any amount within the price range outlined above. Please note, the bottom of the scale is a subsidized rate. See below for information on applying for additional financial aid. Due to the current exchange rate we offer a 20% discount for Canadian families.
Please speak with CGC office staff if you'd like to set up a monthly, interest-free payment plan.
We offer financial assistance in the form of partial scholarships to both campers and staff families. In order to be considered for financial aid, you must contact the office and register for one of our programs by sending in your registration form and your deposit. The demand for aid often exceeds our resources, so apply early.
You can download our application form here.
If you do not receive enough money to make camp possible for your family, please notify our office immediately and your registration fee and deposit will be refunded.
Please help Camp Common Ground happen for families who can't afford it!
Camp Common Ground raises funds for scholarships through an annual appeal to campers and other individuals. The demand for aid usually exceeds available funds. If you can, please make a donation to our Campership Fund with your registration. Your contribution will help a family who could not otherwise afford to enjoy a week at family camp! It will also enrich the family camp experience for everyone by helping to create a more diverse community. Thanks in advance for your generosity and learn more about giving here!
We have a variety of cabins from small 2-person cabins ($100) to a 6-person cabin ($300). Several cabins are wheelchair accessible. If you are willing to share cabin space, the cost to you would be $50 per single bed ($100 for doubles or Queen-size) per week. If you want your own private cabin, you must pay for all the beds in the cabin, regardless of how many you use.
Most cabin space is assigned on a first come, first served basis, but we do consider special needs in assigning cabin space. For more details about our cabins, click here or call the office at 802-453-2592.
Our state-of-the-art Eco-Lodge boasts seven rooms, each one with unique touches, that all have electricity and almost all have bathrooms.

CGC recognizes that families are making tough decisions these days and that those often need to be changed at the last minute because of our public health situation. As such, CGC has developed a COVID specific refund policy. If families need to withdraw from the program based on COVID related challenges, CGC will offer a full refund. If CGC is required to cancel the program based on the advice of public health officials or guidance, CGC will offer a full refund. If a camper must withdraw from the program due to illness CGC will offer a pro-rated refund (note this does not include a single sick day or appointment scheduling conflict.) If families would prefer, they can use their balances as credits for programs later in 2021 (only) or make a donation of their balance and receive a tax receipt.
Camper Packet & Required Forms

Community Service has always been an important part of the Camp Common Ground experience and will be a part of all programs this summer. Through working and playing together we build community at CGC. By sharing the work, we also make our camp a more affordable experience for everyone. All campers are required to sign up to help in the kitchen, bathrooms, or around the site for three hours each week. Younger campers will work with their peers and youth leaders to complete their community service tasks. More details on community service will be available in the camper packet which you'll receive before camp.
