For over four decades, the Vermont Campership Fund has enabled youth to attend Vermont summer camps.



Our History

The Vermont Campership Fund was formerly known as the General Breed Fund. The fund was established in 1970 in honor of Stephen "The General" A. Breed. "The General" was a professor at M.I.T., a director at Vermont's Camp Keewaydin, and an advocate for summer camps. His passion was helping youth—no matter their financial background—attend summer camp. In In 2018 we adopted a new name, the Vermont Campership Fund, to better communicate Mr. Breed’s  vision. 

A “campership” provides financial assistance for a young person to attend one of our member camps in Vermont. Our member camps currently include Camp Sangamon, Camp Betsey Cox, Lotus Lake Day Camp, and Point CounterPoint.

Your donation is 100% tax deductible. The Vermont Campership Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

(Camp) has probably been the most important part of my life, it gave me strength and confidence I never knew I could posses and all through a loving and fun environment.
