*Registration deadline is 2 weeks prior to the start of an individual week.This will help us plan groups and staff appropriately. (Example:
If you are registering your child for the full summer, the registration deadline will be Monday, June 22nd, since camp begins on Monday, July 6th. If you were registering your child for Week 3 only, the registration deadline would be Monday, July 6th, since camp week #3 begins on Monday, July 20th.)
Many thanks to East Haddam Youth and Family Services for sponsoring our camp days at Cave Hill!
Group sizes are limited to 10 children. Total number of groups on site will not exceed three. Each group will have the same counselor and the same group of participants for the duration of the program. Groups are not allowed to mix/intermingle. We will hold camp at both the East Haddam Elementary School and Nathan Hale-Ray Middle School to accommodate 2 groups of 30 campers. We will be keeping sibling staffers and campers together in groups. Each group will be assigned to their own classroom that will be used when we can't be outdoors due to inclement weather.
In addition to a water bottle, snacks and lunch, and sunscreen, parents will provide hand sanitizer (if available), a pencil box with art supplies…scissors, crayons, markers, glue stick, pencil to help limit cross contamination, and may want to provide a towel which will help in limiting facial touching.
