Vermont Tree Houses – And Vermont Dream Makers

Wheel Chair Accessible Tree House at Zeno in LincolnEvery Vermont kid has dreamed of having a tree house. Some adults still do. It’s never too late to get started on that dream. Lincoln’s Zeno Mountain Farm, an organization that runs camps for ‘people with and without disabilities’, has brought tree houses and dreaming building to an art form.

Zeno Mountain Farm is a series of camps, including sports camps in Florida and California, an adventure camp in Guatemala, a film camp in Los Angeles, and summer and winter camps in Lincoln, Vermont. These camps are where dreams come true.

People of all ages and abilities are part of Zeno Mountain Farm including people with Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome, law degrees, Autism, a love of art, teaching certificates, Cognitive Delay, carpentry skills, Williams Syndrome, a willingness to dance in public and Spina Bifida.

The wheel-chair accessible Vermont tree house shown above is the center piece of Zeno in Lincoln, where a month-long camp session brings 65 people together for pottery, dancing, music, acting, poetry, art, sports and adventures in the community. One of Zeno’s recent community adventures included the construction and exhibition of a winning float in the Bristol Fourth of July Parade.
