Operational Update - 2020 Summer Camps Cancelled
Our goal is always to provide our campers, guests, and staff with a safe, fun, and enriching experience. We have been following updates from the CDC, American Camping Association, Department of Children and Families, the Vermont Health Department. After much deliberation and in alignment with our goals, we have decided that due to the significant unknowns and challenges of our state guidelines we do not plan run our traditional TREASURES day care, Summer Fun University children's camps, Vermonter Camp, or Specialty Camps this summer. The long list of protocols provided by the state will make it very challenging to safely run camps while also providing a great guest experience.
Closed until further notice.

Combining the best modern technology with a kid-centered, homey atmosphere, TREASURES Child Care turns it up a notch using Brightwheel software for iOS and Android. TREASURES child care professionals recognize it can be hard for parents (especially new ones) to leave their little ones in someone else’s care. Now, Brightwheel offers added comfort so parents are able to have an instant link to the space where their children can play and grow. In addition to the care of licensed, trained professionals, the staff at TREASURES are thrilled to add to the transparency within the facility. Brightwheel allows for instant updates through photo sharing, record keeping, and communication regarding meals, diaper changes, and activities. Parents can leave their littles in the care of TREASURES professionals and spend their days feeling the utmost comfort, knowing, and seeing, their little treasures are having a great time!
"Treasures was an invaluable part of our vacation. I was able to do activities with my older kids that I would not have been able to otherwise. I felt totally comfortable with my baby there and we have never used day care so that's saying a lot. The brightwheel app was amazing and helpful in making me feel comfortable leaving my child there. They stuck to his schedule and kept me informed." Dara from Bethesda, MD
"Amazing program, wonderful, patient, loving, kind staff, beautiful building with a lot of stimulating toys, would not change anything about it! It is the CROWN JEWEL of Smuggs... loved loved loved it all." Brenda from Madison, CT
