Smugglers' Notch Adaptive Programs

Dedicated to giving your child a fun experience in a supportive environment.



Operational Update - 2022 Summer Children's Programs

Summer Camp Programs will return for Summer 2022. We are working on updating our website to give you the details on what to expect this year! Please check back after May 1 for Summer 2022 programming and pricing!

The Smugglers' Notch Adaptive Program

We are dedicated to providing therapeutic recreation for children and adults of all abilities in a supportive environment. Experiences are tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual. The ratio of counselor to program guest is based on the individual needs of each person.

Depending on individual need, an inclusion program in our daily children's programs may be appropriate, offering the guest the opportunity to socialize with peers while still maintaining the support he or she needs through our adaptive program. It is our hope that each participant will leave the program with feelings of self respect, respect for others and nature, and new skills. The Summer program offers a variety of adventure activities ...


  • Arts & Crafts
  • Guided Hiking
  • Kayaking
  • Mini Golf
  • Nature Time
  • S.T.E.M.
  • Swimming
  • Watersliding

Additional programs
Adaptive swim lessons are available through our Aquatics Department. Lessons may be scheduled during the program and we will accompany the participant to their lesson. Call 802-644-1046 to book a lesson.

Stay tuned for our summer 2022 itinerary and field trip offerings.

Our Summer guests share their feedback...

Clive from Woodstock, GA
"SNAP is one of the many reasons we come back year after year"

Harry from Shrewsbury, MA
"My son has autism and the SNAP program was exceptional. It was our piece of mind that his counselor understood his needs and therefore, my husband and I could be a couple and relax."

Deidre from Northport, NY
"It was the best vacation we've ever taken! It fed our souls. Everything was easily accessible and everyone was very friendly. Both of our children loved camp. We came for the SNAP (Smugglers' Notch Adaptive Program) program for our son. He went and came home with a smile and looked forward to it. Everyone who worked in SNAP was really interested in the well being of our son. Our daughter loved the adventure camp. As a family we loved the array of all day activities as well as the hikes, wikes, and pools. It's a lovely community which we were welcomed into and we hope to make Smuggs a yearly vacation. Our accommodations were very comfortable. We had everything we needed and then some! Although it wasn't fancy, we are a special needs family and really aren't interested in decor. We will definitely share our experience with other special needs families on Long Island. We have really found a treasure at your resort... It was a blessing to have our son experience the outdoors while we had peace of mind he was well cared for and having fun. It allowed us as parents to have a little break and experience nature ... without our children which is a rare treat. We all can't wait to come back!"

Richard from Sewell, NJ
"SNAP is excellent. Every person we have encountered in this program over the past few years has been outstanding. It is inclusive in activities with non-disabled peers, which we highly value, and it is respectful of the person with a disability."
