Hello Friends,
Would like some suggestions for residential 1 week summer camps in CT or nearby states (within 2-4 hrs driving distance) for my 12 yr old daughter.
I feel summer camps are a great way for the kids to develop confidence and interaction.
My daughter went to Camp Woodstock last yr and had a lots of fun. She is insisting on going there again, but we as parents want to give her some newer camp experience so that she sees new places and people.
Basically looking for safe environment, lots of outdoor activities and congenial atmosphere. Co-ed or all-girls camps, doesn't matter.
Thank you in advance

Project Oceanology out of Groton - in association with UConn - has a popular summer camp for kids interested in things related to the water - marine life, swimming, etc.

Sounds good after going through the website. I bet my daughter is going to like it given her interest and excellence in science. The problem is that now she will want to go to 2 camps..this one and another one where she can have more outdoor fun activities.
NewJeffCT..you have increased my budget !! LOL

That's exactly what I was going to suggest. My kids loved it.

There are a few camps that are free if you're from certain schools.

Is there any website/ info place where we can get more information on such camps.
Don't mind paying if the camp is good, but certainly wouldn't like to go overboard.

By the way - have you decided to stay in West Hartford, or are you moving?

We are aggressively looking for a place..not West Hartford..but Cheshire. My wife wins..West hartford is too much of a commute for her. I might have some issues in my first yr of fellowship, but I talked to my colleagues and a couple of them stay even further and are able to manage most of the times.
