Summer Camp

VAB is proud to offer NEW and EXCITING OFF-CAMPUS and ON-CAMPUS Camps. Please check them out!

Registration is Up and Ready to Accept Your Summer Camp Plans!

Verdun Adventure Bound (VAB) summer camp offers a variety of programs for children 10 to 17 years of age.  For the younger campers, we offer the Young Explorers Camp for ages 8, 9 and 10. Daily Camp hours are 8 to 4pm. There is an early drop-off between 7:45 and 8am for no additional fee.  Any camp dropped off earlier than 7:45am will be charged.  We do offer an after camp care program for an additional fee.

While on the VAB campus, each summer camp day includes two daily camp activities. As the camp morning begins and the camp afternoon comes to an end, all campers sit and learn from “Doc Talks” by Dr. Snyder.  Each day builds on the “ME to the WE to the ONE” concept.  The campers also enjoy water activities in our pool and/or pond.

The cost of each camp is listed below.  Also, each camper is required to pay a one time registration fee of $25.00. If your camper attended the VAB Spring Camp, you are not required to pay an additional registration fee again in 2016. Scholarship information is listed under “Who We Serve.” Please contact the office at 540.937.4920 with any questions.
