Hello from Horizons -

One more time, we are contacting you with a summer update. We have spoken to both the Commissioner of the OEC and the Commissioner at DDS regarding any possible respite opportunities that we could provide this summer. With the current guidelines in place we have been told that it is the emphatic and final decision of the “Re-open Connecticut Task Force” that no congregate overnight settings or events are allowed. We have no way to get around this decision and would never want to risk anyone’s health and safety as this is a decision based on the advice of multiple medical experts.

We plan to try to stay engaged with campers as much as possible by increasing our social media offerings throughout the summer. Please follow us on Facebook at Horizons-Camp Horizons or on Instagram @horizonsct and please feel free to reach out if you have an idea of something that might help your camper during the time they would have been with us.

This is a heartbreaking situation for all of us. After 40 years (plus) of summer camp……..we aren’t quite sure what we will do with ourselves! We will, however, continue to keep you updated when we have news to share. In the meantime here is a video from us to your camper so that we can help you break the news.

Much love to all from your Horizons team- Michelle, Scott, Amon, Kyle, Victoria, Nicki, Emily, Alyssa, Steve and most of all our fearless leader in all times and founder, Chris McNaboe

WD7 4946Since 1979, Horizons Summer Camp has been a breath of fresh air for campers and their families. Offered for eight weeks each summer, our camp provides campers opportunities to explore horseback riding, swimming, boating, arts, fitness, drama, movement and dance, pioneering, music, language arts, physical education and more with the help of engaging and well-trained instructors. Campers and counselors bunk together in comfortable cabins.

Campers ride horses at the riding ring with tack house and enjoy the arts & crafts, woodworking and pottery barn. Acres of trees and open space provide the setting for a waterfront with a sandy beach, docks and boats.

The swimming pool, lighted outdoor tennis courts, miniature-golf course, basketball court, playing fields and the many cabins to house campers and staff are enjoyed by all.

Camp Horizons offers all of the experiences you might expect to find in a summer camp…and more! Our 5:1 camper-counselor ratio, plus program instructors and staff, allows us to work closely with each camper to provide individualized attention to his or her special area of need, including maintenance of academic skills, socialization, personal hygiene, independence, and development of leisure time skills. Campers attend three programs in the morning and four in the afternoon. Evening activities are opportunities for the entire camp to come together for entertainment such as campfires, dances, movies, field games and music.
