Summer Camps

Decision, decisions, decisions. Summer camp comes with an array of choices. Do you want your child to attend a local camp, does the camp need to have before and/or after care, would your child like to attend a specific kind of camps such as an acting or technology camp or would they rather do alittle of everything? I feel you! I have been there, done that and am still doing that. We are trying to help make the process easier by identifying local summer camps and breaking them down for you based on specifics that matter to Moms.

Winding Trails Summer Day Camp, established in 1947 is accredited through the American Camp Association and licensed with the State of Connecticut.
