A Vermont Thread

The Vermont experience is threaded throughout the whole of the Brunswick program; students in each major division — Lower, Middle, and Upper School — now travel to the campus for seminal, wilderness-education, and applied-classroom learning experiences.

The campus sits on more than 650 acres of wilderness, hiking trails, and open fields in Randolph, Vermont, offering lodging, meeting rooms, a dining hall, and, most importantly, space — land, woods, streams, and nature in its abundance.

The capstone of the Vermont program sees small groups of sophomores visit campus throughout the year; it’s an experience that sees boys unplugged, outside, and working together. 

Each advisor and student travels by Amtrak train to campus. In short, it is a place absent of iPhones, TikTok, and technology, where Brunswick boys must interact directly with one another and their advisors without distraction. This unmediated interaction fosters incredibly earnest conversations at times, and just plain entertaining ones at others. 

Two senior leaders accompany each group, helping to guide and mentor younger students through the program

Starting in 2022, entire classes of fourth and seventh graders began making the trek up to Vermont for end-of-the-year, shared experiences. 

Time spent in Vermont enhances all aspects of a Brunswick education.

The program lends itself to collaboration, teamwork, inquiry-based learning, and experiential education — and benefits the entire Brunswick community of students and faculty.

Additionally, athletic teams and clubs utilize the campus for both team-building trips and pre-season training.
