ADVENTURE AWAITS DAY-TRIP CAMP 2022

Give your pre-teen or teen the freedom they crave by enrolling them in this fun, safe and supervised local travel experience based camp! Each day participants will be transported by bus or charter to the most sought after field trip venues throughout southern New England and upon arrival, participants will experience all the venue has to offer under the watchful eyes of our most experienced counselors led by Erin Breen and Lelsey VanDeventer. Drop off and Pick up will occur at Ellington Middle School Daily. We expect this brand new offering to fill fast so don’t delay in registering. Due to seat capacity constraints we can not accept additional registrants beyond our maximum!
