Camp CONECT, a free 8-week summer camp offered Monday through Thursday afternoons, provides on-site programs and links children grades 1 through 8 of CONECT neighborhoods with social, recreational, learning, and skill-building activities in a safe and fun environment near their home.
This year’s camp theme is Ambassadors of Peace, and will focus on inner peace, happiness and kindness, restorative justice, and peace in different cultures. Each site will implement age-appropriate lessons and activities so that campers will gain skills and knowledge on how to increase peace and harmony in themselves and their community.
In addition, camp will offer a daily reading station to help children retain their skills over the summer. Each Thursday, campers will go swimming at a local lake. GE will again host an end-of-camp carnival.
