Youth Camps at Vermont State

A group of children and adults are working on a project on the edge of a shallow river.

Want to dig into lab work, learn to code, get behind the yoke of an airplane, or try your hand at running an excavator? Get a taste of what’s behind some really cool careers — and have a whole lot of fun, too — with Vermont State summer camps!

Campers get hands-on opportunities explore what the world has to offer them and what they have to offer the world, and will take positive risks in a safe and nurturing environment.

Youth Camps at Randolph and Williston

The National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI)

The National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) is a fun, interactive, FREE program held on the Randolph and Williston campuses!

The program provides students with hands-on exploration of future careers in transportation through awareness of the complex transportation system we’ve come to rely on. Interactive labs, field trips and guest speakers will engage the students as they drive a big rig in the CDL simulator, visit mass transit systems, and learn how bridges are designed and created. Exploring energy, the environment and eco-friendly transportation systems gives focus to how Math, Science, and English all relate to transportation careers. The NSTI is sponsored by the Vermont Agency of Transportation and funded through a grant from the Federal Highway Administration.
