Fairly pricy… $7.00 for 13+, $6.00 for kids, and so far no discounts offered to DREAM. But a good outdoor mini golf course!

DREAM office played mini golf for an ATD spring 2011.
Franklin St. played mini golf during summer programming 2011 — would only use again with a discount, not very cost effective programming.





Ice Barn

We asked for a group and non-profit rate. It was $5 per person for over an hour plus skates. We booked 5 days in advanced for Friday from 4:15-5:30. The owner is SUPER nice.

2-3hr Group Climb $10 each + $2 shoe rentals (this is even cheaper than their usual group discount which is $12 per person). If you have your own shoes you don’t have to rent. You can also ask to use the upstairs room/tables and whatnot for a meeting and/or meal. They were awesome and accommodating! Weekdays are really quiet!

Shelburne Orchards
216 Orchard Rd. Shelburne, VT 05482
Megan Humphrey
(Elm St. - The deal was first 2 bags free (20 lbs. each) and then 2 more for $20. She was really great about giving us such a great deal!)
(Liz contacted Tristan at the orchards on 10/3/08 and they agreed to give us 1/2 a bushel, or 50 apples, for DREAMstock…possibly more)

Staff and mentors volunteered for Small Farm Food Festival in exchange for reduced-cost apple picking. Trade was one free five-dollar bag of apples for each volunteer plus an additional thirty bags of reduced-cost apples (five-dollar bag to three-dollar bag) to distribute among programs. Contact Megan Humphrey, ten.revos|hnagem#ten.revos|hnagem, or Erin Buckwalter, moc.liamg|retlawkcub.nire#moc.liamg|retlawkcub.nire.
