EJRP Adult Recreation

Free Snowshoe Rentals!

EJRP is proud to announce that we are offering FREE SNOW SHOE RENTALS thanks to a grant from the Vermont Governor's Council on Physical Fitness & Sports. Snowshoes make winter more fun by allowing you to walk on snow-covered trails & roads. Snowshoes are available to rent at the recreation office Monday-Friday from 8am-4pm. Snowshoes may be used both on and off the property and our variety of adult and kids sizes allow for everyone in the family to get a pair. We also have trekking poles available.

Give us a call at 802-878-1375 for sizing and availability!

Dog/Puppy Essentials

We’re busy people.  We’ve got other priorities.  Dog training can feel like One. More. Thing. But, you want a dog you can live with, be proud of, and about which others glowingly remark “What a great dog!” This class shows you how to have a happy, confident, well-behaved dog.  It consists of 3 important skills: practical straight-up obedience (don’t drag me down the street, come when I call, etc.), life skills (don’t jump on my friends, chill out, etc.), and understanding your dog’s body language.
