Gabe’s Bar Mitzvah will take place at beautiful Camp Lanakila, located at 2899 Lake Morey Rd, Fairlee, VT.  During the school year, Lanakila is home to the Hulbert Outdoor Center, a non-profit educational institution that serves 7,000 participants annually through programs designed to foster, among other things, personal growth and self-reliance.  All counselors are trained in wilderness skills and first aid.  During the weekend, there will be at least two EMS-trained counselors on staff.  We can assure you that your camper will be well taken care of.
