Local non-profit organization Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust celebrates its largest Summer Camp and Academy Season. During the 13-weeks of programming, young learners were able to engage with nature, the arts and science in unique and meaningful ways.
Due to the generosity of individual donors, the Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut and the SMPS Family Fund, Flanders was able to serve a greater population of families, providing safe, educational and fun summer programming to children in need from Woodbury, Waterbury and surrounding communities. These camperships provided families with much-needed childcare during the summer months and ensured that all those who wished to participate were able to do so.
Participants were deeply appreciative of the experience, here’s what one family had to say about the impact of their child’s campership:
“Thank you so much to the Flanders counselors. My babies love Flanders summer camp, it is their fun place away from home where daily they make new friends and have fun”
