ABOUT CAMP NERINGA
Neringa is a Lithuanian cultural camp in Marlboro, Vermont, founded by the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception in 1969. For over 40 years Neringa has served thousands of children and families in various camp sessions with the mission to foster understanding and love for Lithuanian heritage, teach Christian values in the Roman Catholic tradition, and provide for positive character development.
Camp Neringa offers a unique opportunity for children and families of Lithuanian heritage to experience and learn about their ethnic roots in a creative, challenging and supportive environment. Camps are offered in Lithuanian and in English for a wide variety of age groups.
The devastation and flooding that hurricane Irene brought upon Southern Vermont did not spare camp Neringa. The storm washed away the bridge to camp, threatened the dam and dock at the pond, and wiped out MacArthur Road and portions of Route 9
We thank all who have contributed to rebuilding efforts, which are currently estimated to cost $75,000 much more help is needed. For more information, please visit www.neringa.org/rebuild.html
