This July 26-28, 2013 treat yourself or your entire family to some old-fashioned summer camp fun centered around the legend of Champ, the famous lake monster of Lake Champlain.
For the family or individual that’s interested in cryptozoology and creatures like Champ, Believe it Tour is promising a weekend that any level believer will enjoy. Champ Camp is going to have an exciting schedule of events and workshops that campers can sign up for.
Some of the extras we have planned include a 1½ hour narrated scenic lake cruise on the Spirit of Ethan Allen, which had the largest mass sighting of Champ in 1984. We’ll also have workshops, evidence gathering tips, educational demonstrations, arts and crafts, campfire stories, and so much more. There are lots of fun activities planned, but everything is optional with plenty of free time mixed in.
In your free time you can explore beautiful Lake Champlain and Button Point Natural Area, a small mature hardwood forest. You can take a hike, bring a mountain bike, or rent a canoe, kayak, or rowboat to experience this amazing area. Fishing and sailing is also allowed at the lake. The park even has a play area and a swimming pool with lifeguards.
Camping at Lake Champlain
Believe It Tour’s 2013 Champ Camp will be held at Vermont’s beautiful Button Bay State Park. The park covers over 250 acres and has amazing vistas that overlook Lake Champlain. The park earned its name because of the button-like geological formations, called concretions, along its water line.
Lake Champlain has a history that stretches back to the ice age and it was, for a short period of time, considered one of the official Great Lakes. The park is located on the grounds of a former farm from the 1700s that was host to a cast of historic characters that ranged from Benjamin Franklin to Ethan Allen. Today the impressive lake is home to a variety of plants, mammals, and over 80 different species of fish.
The campground at Button Bay State Park has a number of tent campsites that will be home base for Champ Camp. Campground amenities include flush toilets and hot showers ($). There is also a play area, large swimming pool, and a variety of boat rentals.
