Weekly residential camp
2017 Season: jun. 25 - Aug. 18
Grab your sleeping bag and your spirit of fun and adventure for overnight camp. The overnight camp program provides children aged 8-15 the chance to reside in cozy, modern cabins with similarly aged campers for a week. This cooperative living atmosphere inspires social and mental growth in a comfortable group setting that inspires individuality, character development and friendship. Set in a natural setting, living at camp for a week fosters connections between campers and their peers, their counselors and the natural world around them.
Outside the cabin, each overnight camp session offers different all-camp events and varied program lessons linked with each week’s theme. For example, Superhero Week would include events inspired by caped crusaders and villains, etc. Campers also have the opportunity to personalize their camp days by choosing the core programs that most interest them to fill their days. From Arts and Crafts and Sports to Archery and Aquatics, check out camp’s programming options.

Arrival & drop off
Camp registration begins at 3:00pm on Sunday of each camp session. Campers are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp. Counselors will be on hand to help guide campers and parents to cabins, as well as to assist in the carrying and unloading of any camp materials.
Our camp store will also be open for camp registration, so we encourage you to check it out and load up on MCC materials before camp starts!
There are no visiting hours during the camp week and telephone use by campers is strongly discouraged. Parents wishing to contact a camper may contact the camp office at 860-873-2294 and speak with the Camp Director.
Before the camp session ends, we invite the camper’s family to attend our closing ceremony on Friday at 6:30 p.m. Parents receive little tastes of the camp week at Closing Ceremony through campers’ skits and songs. Closing Ceremony is followed by checkout, which begins at around 8pm.
Are you a past camper or staff member who wants to attend Friday’s Closing Ceremony? If so, please contact the Camp Director to request permission to attend.
Delicious, plentiful and family-style, our cooks prepare breakfast, lunch, a snack and dinner using fresh veggies, meats and fruits. In addition to the main courses, cereal, milk and our delicious salad bar are also available. A nutritionist at the University of Connecticut reviews all menus to keep healthy eating the heart of all our meals.
If you love campfires, the great outdoors and an in-tents (get the pun?) camp experience, try our Outpost Camping option. This is an optional program where campers have the chance to live in our woods. Eating both breakfast and dinner over an open fire, all the other aspects of camp (daily schedule, amenities, etc.) remain the same.
