Because camper safety is our primary goal, and after discussion with health experts and a review of state guidelines, we have made the decision to cancel Summer Place for 2020. Additional information has been sent to all registered campers regarding refunds. For more information contact splace@hartford.edu. We are looking forward to lots of fun in the sun next summer!
