LPR Summer Camp
Starts June 26, 2018
@ Litchfield Community Field
If you are looking for a fun, safe and exciting place for your son or daughter to spend their summer days, look no more! It’s the Litchfield Parks and Recreation Summer Fun Camp beginning June 26.
Why send your kids to some expensive summer camp where it costs more for their “uniforms” at camp than it does to send them to our camp for the summer?
We have a trained and veteran staff of councilors on board to set a fun tone. We have lots of fun things happening at the camp which goes Monday – Friday at Litchfield’s Community Field, from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Early drop-offs and late pick-ups (within reason) are also available for an additional fee, but for $31 a day, your children will have fun with their friends, learn new things and have great experiences. All the need is a lunch, juice, snack and a water to get them through a fun-filled day.
Some of the things coming to camp are appearances Susan B. Anthony, the 4-H Club, Game Show Guy. The kids are also busy with sports of all kinds, board and memory games, arts and crafts…and more. We take the camp swimming to Sandy Beach on Tuesday afternoons for some water fun and we are going to many other places on our field trips.
The field trips range from $15 to $50 depending on where we go, but we have plans on going to Thomaston Lanes for Bowling, R&B Sports for mini-golf, go-carts, pitching machines and ice cream; Quassy Amusement Park, Mount Tom, Lake Compounce, and we go roller skating and more! And we didn’t even mention “Game Show Guy!” who will be coming to our camp!
Doesn’t it sound like a fun camp? Well, it is! We are signing campers up now. Call (860) 567-7569 for more information. You can also visit our website at, go to departments, then click on “recreation” and then to registration forms for the summer camp registration. Sign up your child today!!!
The daily camp is for children 6 and up with a weekly cost of $155. For the younger children aged 3-5, we offer a three-hour camp (9 a.m. – 12 Noon) Monday through Thursday for a cost of $125.
