Zeno Mountain Farm is a camp for people with and without disabilities, which is a super reductive way to describe it. Most other camps are places where people with disabilities are not. They’re missing. Zeno is a camp where everyone…is. And a camp that includes everybody is way more fun. Exponentially more fun. At Zeno, everyone is a camper and everyone is a counselor and nobody pays to be there and nobody gets paid. It’s just friends who come back year after year to this mountain in Lincoln, Vermont, which looks out over the Champlain Valley. I spent a day talking with people there and capturing the sound of a day at Camp Zeno.

This piece was like a window into a world that could be and most probably should be, where all people are respected and able to live with dignity. This was wonderful. Thank you.
As always, a stellar program. Wonderful depiction of what sounds like a form of utopia. Enjoyed the interviews.
I had the honor of meeting the Halbys and touring Zeno Mountain Farm. The world needs more places like this where no one judges or is judged. Their extended family exemplifies what can be right with the world. A beautiful tribute Erica. Thank you.
