Experience the Region
One week all-inclusive stay ( meals, too!) for a two bedroom cabin which sleeps 2 adults and 2 or 3 children.
Ohana is one of five renowned summer camps operated by The Aloha Foundation. The camps are the legacy of an adventuresome family who lived and taught in Hawaii in the 19th century, and returned to New England early in the 20th to establish a pioneering wilderness camp for girls in Fairlee, Vermont.
In the Hawaiian language, "ohana" means family, community, a circle of good friends. So the camp we call Ohana brings families and friends together to refresh and celebrate their ties, and build new ones with others who enjoy living simply for a time in the out-of-doors, and sharing all that nature has to offer.
A country retreat of great natural beauty, Ohana was built in the early 1900s primarily as lodging for families with children at the many summer camps then operating around Lake Fairlee. Known originally as Shanty Shane, the property was described in a brochure of the day as a "vacation camp for adults and families in the hills of the high country west of the Connecticut River, with cozy little houses built for two or more, and a main hall on such a height as to afford a view unsurpassed in New England." The property currently comprises nineteen rustic guest cabins, 6 platform tents, a handsome historic dining lodge, and a variety of outbuildings on 112 acres of woods, fields and waterfront, with grand views of the Middlebrook river valley and the mountains to the west.
Stay to take place Sat- to Sat during the 2009 season 6/27 - 8/22.
