Camp Scholarships Available for Madison Children
Through the generosity of Madison Community Services, Madison Foundation's Neighbor to Neighbor Program and the Exchange Club, we have been able to help with summer fun for children in Madison ages 5 to 15. Each family must meet with Wendy Larson, Social Services' Coordinator (203-245-5655) to verify their financial situation prior to being awarded a scholarship to a camp of their choosing.
There are several camps to choose from like Madison Arts Barn, Dustin's Place, Madison Beach and Recreation, Camp Hazen, Bushy Hill, Camp Connri, Channel 8 Kids Camp, to name just a few. You may also search the web at www.ctcamps.org for other camps available in Connecticut. All funds are on a first come first serve basis until the funding has run out. So please don't wait.
