CAMP LOCATION: We are located just 90 minutes East of New York in Chester, CT on 160 acres of wooded lands. We border the beautiful Cedar Lake and Cockaponsett State forest, both of which feature heavily in our program.

CAMP FACILITIES: We have 26 camper cabins, two waterfronts, multiple sports fields and courts, and a dining hall. Please visit the facility section of our website for lots of photos of each of our facets.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Hazen is a child-centered community. We focus on each individual and teach skills that kids will use forever. Whether it’s learning a new activity, making friends or becoming more resilient, independent and understanding,we know that campers return home inspired to live in a way that will make them proud.
We're a place where people connect and truly belong.

There is no better feeling than that of coming home from camp having had the experience of a lifetime. Year after year campers leave Camp Hazen having found their best friends. And each summer, the joy of reuniting with counselors and old friends is one of life's greatest rewards. Kids simply love Camp Hazen, and whether it is their first time or they are a lifelong Hazenite, campers find that they belong here more than any other place in the world.

Camp Hazen has more than 90 years of making summers memorable for kids. One of the reasons for this long-term success is the firm belief in maintaining the traditions and values that make campers want to come back year after year. Campfires, ceremonies, singing, camping out under the stars, small cabin groups and a family-like community are as important as helping kids develop their character and confidence.

Camp Hazen YMCA is both licensed by the state of Connecticut and accredited by the American Camp Association.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The LEA program is for teens entering the 11th and 12th grade. The program has a limited number of spots that are decided by an application and interview process with the camp directors.

By participating in the LEA Program, participants will have a full three weeks of leadership workshops, teambuilding, belay training, working together as a group, planning activities, participating in camp program areas and contributing to the camp community. An optional fourth week is dedicated to obtaining an American Red Cross Lifeguard certification.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Realizing that families have differing abilities to pay, Camp Hazen YMCA has instituted a voluntary 4-tier pricing program for our Summer Resident Camp and Day Camp programs. All children will have the same experience no matter which tier a family is able to pay. The tier selected by a family will be kept confidential.

Tier 1
is based on the full cost of campers participating in the selected programs. If you are able to pay this amount, please do so. Thank you.

Tier 2
is a partially subsidized rate that will enable families that just can't afford the full cost of the camp program. Please, choose this rate if your family has the need to receive a subsidized rate.

Tier 3
is a more heavily subsidized rate for families whose children would not be able to attend camp otherwise. If you can not afford either of the higher rates, please pay this amount.

Tier 4
is a variable rate for families whose financial assistance need is greater than the subsidized rates above. We provide more significant financial assistance to families that demonstrate need through our Financial Assistance Program. If you need additional assistance, please choose this option and complete a Financial Assistance application.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Memorial and Labor Day Family Camp Weekends
April Father & Son Weekend
October Mother & Daughter Weekend

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Hazen provides a number of Year-Round Acitivities including multiple camper reunions for our summer campers, overnight expos for new campers, school vacation day camps, as well as an extensive Outdoor Education and Adventure Program.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The Holiday Hill NEST program grows 9th and 10th graders into leaders.

Many of our oldest campers eagerly stay on, often becoming the next generation of kid-loving counselors. But NEST is not just counselor training, so we welcome all who seek a very educational and motivational program.
NEST (Nurturing Experiences for Staff Trainees) —
• 2-year progressive experiential education course
• Develops natural leadership qualities by teaching basic camp leadership skills
• Creates well-rounded, thoughtful, caring and competent staff members with a broad range of human relation skills, outdoor education techniques, sports, games and camp programming ideas.
• Benefits young people regardless of their interest in camp counseling.
While not a prerequisite or a promise, most of our current staff members are graduates of this course.

Eagle Phase
• Campers entering ninth grade in the fall after camp
• 4-week program taken in either sessions 1-2 or sessions 3-4
• Course components led by our Camp Director, Aquatics Director, Ropes Course facilitators and other key camp staff
• Coordinated by a specially trained counselor who acts as the Group Leader
• Enrollment limited on a first-come, first-served basis by registering with the standard summer camp registration form.

If taken in the first half of the summer, successful participants may return for one or two more sessions as Junior Staff Trainees (JST’s). These young people are placed with camper groups to gain experience alongside regular staff. If the Eagle Phase of the program is taken in the second half of the summer, campers may attend our regular camp program as Hawks (our oldest camper group) for all or part of the first two sessions.

Junior Counselor Phase
• Second summer of the program
• Open to graduates of the Eagle Phase who are entering tenth grade in the fall
• Junior Counselor candidates apply for a limited number of positions and attend at a special camp fee

• Rotated among different camper groups and specialty areas throughout the summer for a variety of experiences with different aged campers and activities
• JCs receive additional in-service training, evaluation and mentoring throughout the summer from their special advisor and others in our camp leadership.

Eagle Phase enrollees need to complete only the regular Summer Camp Registration Form.

Junior Counselor enrollees need to complete both the Junior Counselor Application and the Summer Camp Registration Forms.

Call the camp at 860-423-1375 with questions or to enroll by phone.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Mansfield’s Holiday Hill Day Camp is an American Camp Association accredited camp committed to helping youth develop valuable life skills through camping programs that build self-esteem, independence, leadership and friendship skills, environmental awareness, and a spirit of adventure and exploration. We serve people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and incomes.

The funds available for Holiday Hill’s Campership Program are made possible through the generosity of our volunteers, alumni, camper families, staff and community donors, and the American Camp Association Camper Scholarship Program. Families are asked to provide financial information to substantiate their requests for tuition support.

Families are asked to pay as much of their camp tuition as possible, and request Camper Scholarship funds to make up the balance. Contact the camp for a Campership Application Form.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Holiday Recreation Center—Summer never felt so good. (And maybe even spring and autumn too!)

Three generations of central Connecticut families have come to trust us – to mentor their children, to ensure both physical and emotional safety, and to impart valuable life skills – all while kids are having the summer time of their lives.

So, why not do similar things for families and adult groups in Mansfield Center, Storrs, Willimantic, Manchester and the surrounding areas? That commitment has created the addition of:
• group picnics and outings
• pool memberships
• our challenge course

Any given weekend can include:
• a wedding or reunion
• a corporate teambuilding event
• a lot of family bonding around our pool.

During spring and autumn, we can handle groups any day of the week.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Our superlative and totally dedicated counselors join campers in creating a true summer family in an environment rich in safety, comfort, acceptance and FUN!

We begin with all the physical skills and challenges everyone expects at camp. Then we go beyond the obvious and emphasize the social, emotional and psychological growth of our campers with activities that create a spiral of successes.

Each child is an important person, sharing in the democratic process of the whole group. Each day is a chance for campers to learn to appreciate each other and to appreciate our environment. We encourage campers to take responsibility for themselves and their actions, and to feel good about themselves. Every camper takes home a smile and life-long memories, plus new skills and new friendships.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
2014 Camp Session Dates – A two-week session minimum is highly recommended! Split sessions of one week are also available.

June Mini Camp: June 16-20
Session 1: June 23- July 4; Includes camp on July 4!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Silver Lake Conference Center has been welcoming conferees (campers) for a week of life-changing, community-building adventure in God's Backyard since 1957.

Summer camp is open to young people in grades 4 though 12.

Our conferences cover a broad range of interests and activities, from musical theater to poetry to high-energy games to sailing and canoeing. See individual conference descriptions for more information.

Our week-long conferences have offered "once-in-a-lifetime experiences, over and over" to several generations of youth, helping to shape future leaders and spirited community-builders everywhere.

Each week during the summer we host five conferences for different age groups with different themes. The theme of the conference helps to shape some of the activities for the week. For example, Silver Lake's Funniest Videos will spend some time writing, shooting, and editing short films. Biking North will go on biking adventures outside of Silver Lake.

While a lot of the group's activity will center on the conference's theme, all conferences are camp experiences first: You will live at camp, eat in the social hall with the other conferences, swim in the lake, check out the high and low ropes courses, dig around in the garden, or sit around a campfire. Also, each conference takes turns leading all-camp worship one night of the week.

Silver Lake has become a sacred place to so many people, young and old. We invite you to come away from the busyness of everyday life and find out what is so special about this ministry of God's love.

Silver Lake welcomes church groups, youth groups, schools, non-profits and businesses during the Fall, Winter, and Spring.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Skyhawks Sports Camps are SAFETY FOCUSED!

At Skyhawks we go the extra mile to focus on safety, and we have a long-standing proven safety track record and processes to prove it. For example, all Skyhawks Sports camps start and end with our unique safety process called �Gate System and Parking Lot Duty.� This process is where coaches come and greet both parents and campers in the parking lot when parents pull up to drop off their children.

Our staff guide the kids onto the field/court and out of harm�s way by funneling them into our gate system. Eye contact is maintained from each one of our staff members until the kids make it onto the field/court where they are grouped by age. This efficient process ensures safety. Additionally, it develops a level of trust between parent, coach, and child that ultimately leads to a fun and skill-focused camp for youth.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Skyhawks Sports Camps are offered throughout the summer, and specific dates and times vary from location to location.

Fees vary depending on age, duration of camp, and location.

You can find a complete list of sessions, times, and fees for ALL the Skyhawks Sports Camps in your area at: This Website Link.
