   Hazen's Notch Camp   


The Hazen's Notch Camp has since 1994 provided week-long sessions of day and overnight camp for children ages 6 to 14. Located in the Hazen's Notch area of Montgomery, Vermont - the Hazen's Notch Camp is a program of the Hazen's Notch Association, a non-profit organization founded in 1994 to promote and engage in conservation of open lands, environmental education, outdoor recreation, scientific research, and stewardship of natural resources. The Hazen's Notch Camp has been one of the organization's most important programs throughout these years.

Hazen's Notch Campership Fund

The Hazen's Notch Camp is of enormous benefit to a great many children in our area. We had come to realize, however, that for some families the cost of Summer Camp is not affordable. In order to make this quality experience available to these children, the HNA established the Hazen's Notch Campership Fund. Your gift will help make it possible for many children to attend camp who might otherwise not be able to have this opportunity.

Hazen's Notch Landowners

Over 12 private landowners in the Hazen's Notch Area make their land available to the Hazen's Notch Association for recreational trails and environmental education programs. We are very grateful to our cooperating landowners who make their land available to winter trail users who enjoy cross country skiing + snowshoeing. Many of our cooperating landowners also allow the Hazen's Notch Camp to use the trails which traverse these private properties. Thank you to all of our cooperating landowners for their generous support of the Hazen's Notch Camp.

Hazen's Notch Trails Fund

The HNA maintains a network of 30 miles of trails on 2,000 acres of private land for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking. Contributions to the HNA Trails Fund support the costs of maintaining trails, trail markers and signs, of expanding the trail network, and improving trail surfaces to prevent damage to soils, water quality and plants. We are proud of the network of trails that we have developed in partnership with our neighbors in Montgomery. Show your support for the HNA Trails by making a contribution to the Trails Fund.
