Champlain and Burlington

The town: Champlain College is located in the heart of Burlington, Vermont, on the south end of the vibrant downtown and a mile from Lake Champlain. Burlington, home to the original Ben & Jerry's ice cream shop, is a small, vibrant city. The downtown has a pedestrian-only marketplace, bookstores, tea shops and coffee shops, restaurants, an indie movie theater, a grocery store and a farmer's market, all within a mile of campus. An environmentally-conscious city, Burlington has been running entirely on renewable energy since 2015.

Going off campus: Students at Mathcamp are welcome to explore the nearby town. You can pick up extra pens or snacks at the campus bookstore, but campers often enjoy outings to nearby grocers, bookstores, and ice cream shops! Keeping track of our students' whereabouts is very important to us, and students must check out before leaving campus. Learn more about student safety.

Field Trips: There are great opportunities for field trips in the area on weekends at Mathcamp! Field trips are entirely optional, but open to all students. The cost of field trips is included in the camp fee. We encourage parents to complete permission forms, which are required for students to have the option to participate in some field trips.
