Camp’s a place for kids to thrive!
Run with us to help give all children the opportunity to experience high quality camp programs through nature education, healthy play and creativity.
We believe camp is an experience every child deserves, regardless of their ability to pay! Founded in 1910, over 4,000 children from Connecticut and Southern New England attend the Channel 3 Kids Camp each year. Campers experience a care-free refuge for healthy play, the outdoors and making new friends with programs that promote confidence and independence.
Channel 3 Kids Camp offers traditional day and overnight summer camp, Camp Venture’s (an afterschool program), and a year-round teen leadership program. The Kids Camp also hosts Nature’s Classroom, Siblings Connections which reunites siblings in foster care, and partners with Camp Abilities to provide camping experiences to children who are visually impaired, blind or deaf blind. Special Events and public support make it possible for all children to experience year-round camp programming without financial restrictions.
The Kids Camp is currently expanding facilities in anticipation of opening a ‘Camp for all Kids’ by building Ashley’s Place that will accommodate children of varying abilities with a 24-hours nurse and health area. The Channel 3 Kids Camp is a sanctuary for children all year long regardless of economic, physical or developmental ability to come play, learn and grow without barriers.
