The Connection is getting ready for Summer Camp as the warmer weather quickly approaches. The Connection’s Summer Camps have something to make every child’s summer memorable. Performing arts, swimming, gymnastics, sports, yoga, arts and travel are all part of a campers day. Camps run for eight weeks from June 29 – August 21. Sign up for a full day, half day, one week, or all eight!

Join The Connection in the morning for SummerFun Camp (8:30-1:00pm, ages 3+). From the fun and thrills of trying new activities, to the friendships made- it’s no wonder why so many campers return year after year. Campers are grouped by age and rotate through The Connection’s 30,000 sq ft. building, outdoor recreation and playground facilities, and a state of the art gymnastics gym for a well-rounded summer camp experience.  

Specialty Camps in the afternoon include: Girls Gymnastics (ages 4+), Lights! Camera! Action! (ages 3+) and Fit & Fun (ages 4+). All campers will enjoy their favorite activity, whether they love gymnastics, performing arts, or sports and fitness, in addition to daily recreational swim time or swim lessons and outdoor play. All afternoon specialty camps run from 1:00-4:30pm. 

Spots fill fast for the Travel Camp, where lucky campers ages 8+ take a day trip to exciting locations. This camp is ideal for the older camper who loves adventure! Travel Camp is offered for 2 weeks. Parents can choose 1 day or any combination of days or weeks!

Trips for the first week include a packed day with a visit to The Beast Boat Ride and The Ride Interactive Bus Tour in NYC (7/13), a fun day in the sun at Tomahawk Lake Water Park (7/14), an exciting trip to Madison Square Garden for a NY Liberty WNBA game, a trip to the beach and Island Beach State Park Ecology Tour (7/16), and a trip to Glassworks Studio and The Bounce Factory (7/17).

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.
