Green Mountain Camp – Billie Slade

24 April, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Green Mt Camp is a local treasure, nestled in the hills of Dummerston,
VT, just across the covered bridge on Rte 30. GMC has been a girl’s
camp since 1917 and is already planning for it’s big centennial
celebration!  The camp is unique in many ways and offers a timeless
setting for girls to play and learn while building appreciation for
each other and the world around them. GMC nurtures friendships, builds
confidence, and empowers girls to believe in themselves, all while
creating lifelong memories!

Billie Slade was a third generation camper at GMC and feels privileged
to have returned to be the Executive Director at the camp she has
loved for nearly 50 years! She attended the camp from the age of 7 as
a camper and then went on to be a counselor in her teens. Coming back
“home” in 2012, she has initiated several new activities at the camp,
hired a stellar staff, and the camp has thrived under her leadership,
enjoying record attendance last summer, with several weeks selling
out! The mix of beloved traditions and the infusion of innovative new
ideas have helped the camp to grow and bring girls back year after
year, even several second and third generation campers like herself!

In preparation for celebrating 100 years, GMC is looking for any and
all alumnae who attended the camp
to share their memories or photos at their upcoming Alumnae event on
Sat, May 17th!  Contact us at or 802-257-1751 or or find us on facebook.
