Empowering Girls & Women Since 1919

About Camp Hochelaga

Located on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain in South Hero, VT, Camp Hochelaga has been offering traditional summer camp experiences for girls ages 6-17 since 1919. For nearly 100 summers, 600-800 girls from all over Vermont, the United States and the world pass through camp's front gate and enter a place of adventure, self-expression, teamwork and life-long friendship.

Camp Hochelaga is an American Camp Association accredited camp and provides overnight, day camp, and leadership development programs that offer opportunities to explore a wide range of activities intended to build character, self-esteem, self-confidence, empowerment and leadership. Camp Hochelaga prioritizes social, emotional and physical safety, to create a magical place where camp traditions, fun, outdoor adventures, engaged staff mentors, and friendships combine to create unforgettable experiences. At 'Laga, our core values of collaboration, kindness, leadership, and empowerment live at the center of all that we do.

Camper Testimonials

“Hochelaga is special to me because everyone inspires me somehow and the counselors are role models for all of us. It’s a second family and there is nothing else like it anywhere.” - Residential Camper

"I love coming back to 'Laga because camp friends are friends like no other. By the end of the first day, you basically are best friends and by the end of the first week, you are pretty much sisters. I love all my 'Laga sisters!" - Residential Camper

"Hochelaga is special because each time I come I meet new people, learn new things, and by the time I'm home, I'm campsick. Everything is exciting because Hochelaga has helped me become open to more new things. My cabin is my bedroom, and Hochelaga is my family! Everyone is kind and caring and the songs warm my heart." - Residential Camper
