Summer Camp Success!

Posted on August 18, 2020. Category: WCS News

We are so happy to announce that despite all of the obstacles of 2020, Camp Cuheca  was able to operate above the predicted capacity throughout the summer and had no COVID related incidents. We wanted to be able to offer outdoor activity for kids (and respite and relief for their parents) and this summer was a huge success.  This was an extremely challenging project due to COVID, many longstanding summer camp programs in CT could not operate this summer. Our summer camp success is a good indicator of how we will continue to manage the campus in this COVID cautious climate. Congratulation to all the camp staff for an awesome summer!

From a Camp Cuheca parent

“N has for years shared with us the emotional struggles he experiences specific to severe anxiety, distress, fear and worry in connection with his school avoidance and opposition to school primarily, but also to other outside extra curricular activities such as Swimming, Gymnastics and Horseback riding. 

Since starting Camp 2 1/2 weeks ago I have not once experienced N to be resistant or opposed to attending. Not once!!!

One week as I watched my son as he got out of the car to join Counselor Kyle and the rest of the group and I saw him eager and excited to start his day at Camp.

He was joyous and excited. 

He was showing confidence and certainty in how he carried himself. 

He held no anxiety or worry at all.

He felt safe and like he belonged. 

You guys ROCK and have given me back not just a part of the old N I remember from a few years ago, but also pieces of happiness and real joy that I have never witnessed N to have consistently for any lengthy period of time up until he started at Camp Cuheca. 

I wanted to share this and say thank you – THANK YOU – THANK YOU!”
