“Day Camps at The Connection have been a tradition in the community for over 70 years” says Youth/Performing Arts Director, Cindy McArthur. “Our personal, friendly staff connects with the campers and makes sure they all have a fun filled summer!”

Specialty afternoon camps are offered 1:00-4:00pm.  “Girl’s Gymnastics Camp” gives young gymnasts the opportunity to tumble, flip and twirl in a state of the art gymnastics gym… perfect for beginner to advanced gymnasts. “Fit N Fun” teaches campers a variety of sports, geared to individual ability levels to help gain confidence and acquire a love of sports. Lights!Camera!Action! gives campers a complete summer stock experience. This camp includes an on camera class, voice lessons, dancing, staging, set and costume design, culminating in a spectacular show performed the last day of the 2 week session.  

“Travel Camp”  (8:30-4:30pm) is perfect for the older camper (ages 8+).  Campers visit exciting locations on unique day trips such as Aladdin on Broadway, Tomahawk Lake, Sahara Sam’s, Rebounderz, NY Aquarium, and more! All trips are supervised by trained, professional staff. 

In addition to the regular camp times, The Connection also offers Extended Day Camps.  The Sunrisers Camp is convenient for parents who need an early drop off option.

The Campers Club is a simple, easy way for children to wind down after a busy afternoon with board games, drawings, arts and crafts, and outdoor play until 6:00pm.

The Connection camps are a fantastic way to spend the summer, offering a truly rounded experience. From the fun and thrills of trying new activities, to the friendships made – it’s no wonder so many campers return year after year!
