The Kinderplace and Li’l Place camp experience extends beyond the boundaries of campus. Each session includes real world, hands-on fun and learning to complement the exciting activities happening in the classrooms. Campers get the chance to partake in such stimulating educational adventures as enjoying hayrides at a local 4-H farm, getting swept up in a hurricane at the CT Science Center, or experiencing a butterfly landing on them. Kinderplace and Li’l Place campers also participate in excursions to the Barnes & Noble for story hour. Transportation for all off-campus trips is provided by the University of Hartford’s shuttle bus.
In addition, a variety of on-campus field trips are scheduled each session. Whether its attending a Summer Place performance dress rehearsal in the theatre, a visit from The Children’s Museum with some furry friends, or watching campers climb trees to zip-line through the branches, each unique adventure adds to the overall camp experience!
