Welcome to Our Community Cares Camp in Richmond, Vermont!
We offer children (ages 5 - 14) from Eastern Chittenden County (Richmond, Huntington, Bolton, Jericho and Underhill) Vermont the opportunity to enjoy healthy summer food and to participate in a free, fun and engaging summer camp program on the grounds of the Camels Hump Middle School. Our camp provides the kids in our community with the chance to explore and be creative. We nourish the whole child in a caring environment. OCCC also provides internships to local teens to gain work experience as a junior counselor or culinary intern.

What is Food Insecurity? And do we have it here in Eastern Chittenden County?
The answer is YES! Many families in each of our towns struggle to get sufficient nutritious food on the table each day. During the school year, kids can get meals for free or reduced prices at school. During the summer - it is harder to meet those nutritional goals. So how many kids is that, exactly? Here are some numbers to ponder, sorted by town(s).
Bolton - 19 or 35.85%
Huntington - 36 or 30%
Richmond - 61 or 24.80%
Jericho Elementary - 48 or 19.28%
Underhill ID - 15 or 15.46%
Underhill Central 19 or 13.57%
Camels Hump - 81 or 21.72 %
Browns River - 63 or 14.35%
