A place like Quimby Country allows the whole family to get away, unplug, and have a shared experience where everyone can learn new things together – distractions, whether unavoidable or intentional make it so hard for families these days to make those crucial connections. At Quimby Country, it is hard to find distractions as the experience is designed to bring families together and provide opportunities to explore, learn and connect.
At Quimby’s, we believe the best way to continue to grow and learn, no matter how old you are, is to try new things and take risks. At Quimby’s there are plenty of opportunities to try new things, from learning how to fly fish to shooting an arrow to going mountain biking to canoeing down the Connecticut River.
During the day children participate in our counselor program, where they aren’t always in the presence of their parents. They have the opportunity to try new things and explore newfound interests, and maybe most importantly they get the opportunity to develop independence.
Quimby Country wants to be part of the solution, we want to help provide a place for families, where they can get away, unplug, connect and grow together. Join Us!

Five Reasons to vacation at Quimby’s with your kids:
- Unplug.We live in digital times, but kids and parents both need to turn away from their screens and engage in meaningful face-to-face interactions. Quimby’s has no cell service, limited Wi-Fi, and no TVs.
- Connect with your kids. Quimby’s activities and environment gives you opportunities to interact with your kids on a level playing field, learning new things and having fun together.
- Take risks. Parents and children can learn and grow by taking risks together. And Quimby Country offers ample opportunity to try new things. From fly-fishing to archery and from mountain biking to hiking. Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom is an ideal setting for activities the whole family can enjoy.
- Let go. The desire to maintain a sense of control is part of our DNA as parents. But a taste of independence can help teach our children responsibility. The counselor program at Quimby Country encourages kids to roam freely under watchful eyes, while building relationships of trust with adult mentors.
- Time for yourself.Your kids’ academic assignments, extracurricular activities, and your own career obligations leave you with little time for yourself. Quimby’s balances counselor-led activities for kids and family with ample free time for adults, whether spent alone, with your spouse, or with other grownups.
