The Cabins at Jackson's Lodge are full  but there are plenty of class openings and space for camping out or daily drive-ins. There are also cabins available down the road at Quimby Country for the same weekend fee.

Doe Camp registration is on a first come first served basis. You do not need previous outdoor experience to attend. Each class is designed to offer hands-on experience for beginners and pros alike in a supportive environment. Participants must be at least 18 years of age. Most classes will include a trip to the woods or water so please dress comfortably and sensibly. We recommend that you bring hiking shoes/sneakers and rain gear since classes will be held rain or shine.

The lakeside log cabins at Jackson’s Lodge combine a rustic and relaxing family-friendly atmosphere with all the modern necessities you’ll need during your New England vacation.

Please read the class descriptions carefully for details on what clothing/gear and levels of physical activity and experience are expected. 

Equipment is provided (Exceptions are noted in course descriptions). However, please feel free to bring your own equipment. Your firearms MUST be stored unloaded and kept in a locked case or with trigger lock. If you intend to fish, please bring along your Vermont fishing license. Purchase your license online:
