Here’s a link to a beautiful map of Island camps.
Gone are the days when camp was a predictable lineup of crafts, snacks, naps, swimming lessons and more naps. The Vineyard has as many day camps as it does dirt roads and shady lanes — camps where kids can garden, dance, skateboard, improvise comedy routines, and jump joyfully from kayaks.
