Middlefield P&R Camp gets ready to open June 30


Middlefield Park and Recreation is getting ready for another fun-filled season of summer camp at Memorial Middle School.

With the first day of camp approaching on June 30, camp counselors, directors Hannah Malcolm, Gwen Kotlarz, and Mackenzie Hurlbert, and Middlefield Park and Rec Director Christopher Hurlbert are preparing to make this year even better than those past.

“Middlefield Park and Rec brings excitement every summer,” said Kotlarz about her past experiences working at the camp. “Fun here is a guarantee.”

The six-week program stretches from June 30 to August 8 with a no-camp holiday break on July 4. There is an enrollment fee for the six-week program, however campers do not have to be enrolled for all six weeks. Middlefield Park and Rec also offers one and two-week sign-ups.

The camp week runs Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and offers early drop-off times at 8 a.m. for an additional fee. Financial aid is available, and the camp also offers additional discounts for parents enrolling three children or more. If interested in financial aid, call Middlefield Park and Recreation Director Christopher Hurlbert at (860) 349-7122.

Each camp day consists of open gym time, a unique arts-and-crafts project, an afternoon movie viewing, playtime outside on the playground, and much more. The six weeks of summer camp are filled with fun, themed days such as super hero day, a talent show, and nature day. While field trips to Lake Compounce, an indoor trampoline park, and a bowling alley are offered, they are optional for all campers.

“Middlefield Park and Recreation is happy to once again provide one of our best values in child care this summer,” said Christopher Hurlbert, Middlefield Park and Rec Director. “The camp has been getting better and better each year, and I look forward to another fun-filled summer.”
