Held in the Watkinson School gymnasium, 180 Bloomfield Avenue, Hartford
Summer Place takes great pride in its exceptionally qualified staff. The daily program is directed by Craig Diamond and Anthony Weber, both teachers with years of leadership experience. Schoolteachers and professional artists teach the enrichment courses and teachers with extensive coaching experience run the athletics activities. Summer Place counselors are a select group of college students and high school seniors who are carefully trained to assist and supervise campers throughout the day. Summer Place also houses a health-care team, complete with an on-site registered nurse and on-call physician. The Summer Place staff is committed to ensuring that every child has a fun, challenging, and safe camp experience.
Sports and recreational activities—along with arrival and dismissal—will take place at Watkinson School, located adjacent to the University. Watkinson offers Summer Place a modern sports center, expansive playing fields, fitness room, dance studio, and state-of-the-art amphitheater.
