This half day or full day camp is the perfect way for young children (age 4 to entering grade 1 in the fall)  to get an introduction to the camp experience, make friends and develop or enhance socialization skills. Our caring staff will offer opportunities for free play and self expression and organize story time, arts & crafts, games, sports and water activities. Fantasy Faces Too will visit weekly on Wednesday mornings (Thursday during 4th of July week) to paint the campers' faces in keeping with the theme of the weekl

Engaging staff will closely supervise and participate with children in organized games, sports, arts & crafts, swimming, boating and other age appropriate activities for the campers. All campers will be required to complete a swim test before swimming and/or boating. There are themes and special activities/guests each week to add variety.

Summer 2018 Details:

Camp Sassacus - at Mixville Recreation Area

The Mixville Tradition continues! Campers entering grades 5 & 6 in the fall go on one small trip each week. In addition to the trips, campers have plenty of fun playing games, completing arts & craft projects, swimming, boating and participating in sports. In the past few years campers have participated in "skill hours" in which they pick an activity to learn more about and practice daily for the week.  Past skill hours have included fort building, wilderness first aid, canoeing, quidditch, dodgeball, bracelet making and more! All campers complete a swim test before participating in water activities.For all trips campers will be transported by bus and return to Mixville in time for regular 3:30pm pickup.  The camp day runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 9:00am and after care from 3:30pm to 6:00pm also available.


Summer 2018 Details:

Camp Sachem - at Mixville Recreation Area

Come see what Mixville has to offer.  Campers who will enter grades 7 to 9 in the fall come for one week and end up wanting to come back for the rest of the summer! Enjoy kayaking and canoeing in our very own pond. On those really hot days, you can go for a swim or play water basketball. Join this camp on exciting field trips and take part in the weekly cookout and dodgeball tournament on Fridays. Campers go on one field trip per week. The trip is a full day affair at an amusement or adventure park. The camp day runs from 9:00am to 3:30pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 9:00am and after care from 3:30pm to 6:00pm also available.

*New for 2018* If you are only interested in camp for the afternoon, you are welcome to register for Afternoon Sizzler. Attending Summer School is no longer a prerequisite! 

We offer an all-day collaborative program with the Department of Education, offering the best of both worlds: academic enrichment conducted by Summer School staff in the mornings and planned recreational activities conducted by Parks & Recreation camp staff in the afternoons. Children who complete grades K to 6 in the spring must be registered with Cheshire Summer School to be eligible fore Sizzler and Sizzler Extended Care. Recreational activities will consist of a variety of games, sports, sprinkler/water activities and arts & crafts. Weather permitting on Wednesdays, children will be bussed to the Community Pool one week and Mixville the other week. The camp day runs from 12:00pm to 4:00pm with options for before care from 7:00am to 9:00am and after care from 4:00pm to 6:00pm also available. Summer School meets from 9:00am to 12:00pm.
