In our 99th year the Channel 3 Kids Camp continues to offer an inclusive camping experience for youth, which includes helping children from 102 towns across the state from a variety of backgrounds. The core program of the Channel 3 Kids Camp is our Overnight & Day Summer Camping Program. We are unique in that we are the only camp in Connecticut that provides affordable overnight camping experiences for all families. To make that happen we offer camperships so every child can come and enjoy the wonders of the Andover and Coventry wilderness! With over 4000 children, ages 6 - 16 participating in programs year round, and a wide variety of activities offered, we are proud to say that the opportunities provided here are unmatched anywhere in the State. Channel 3 Kids Camp is more than just a summer camp, but is a year round camp facility. For thousands of area children, we are also an Environmental Education Center through our partnership with Natures Classroom, an After School Educational Service, and a Retreat Area for weekend programs. The Kids Camp also hosts foster sibling reconnection weekends, winter vacation camps and year round teen leadership programs. For many children the opportunity to experience the thrill of sleeping under the stars, frolicking in the river, being part of a summer play, or receiving Red Cross certified swimming lessons in a sparkling clean pool, has only been a dream of things that other children are able to do not them. Generous contributions enable us to ensure that those campers who might otherwise be unable to afford a week in the country are given the opportunity to enrich their lives through one of our multiple programs, including video and movie productions, golf, gardening , archery, high-low ropes, or arts and crafts. We could not do this work without the kindness of individuals, foundations, and public support and we are most grateful for this generosity.
