Last year we expanded our camp to 50 campers per week while still maintaining a high ratio of staff to campers. Our goal is to keep our campers having fun and engaged in animal therapy and outdoor adventures all day!

School’s beautiful woodland campus, but also the amount of local children who will be able to come. Last year the camp provided summer recreation for 36 campers and this year nearly 50 slots are available for children in the surrounding community. With another week added, there are now 7 weeks of summer camp from July 5-August 19. Children are provided lunch and two snacks daily. Transportation assistance
and scholarship monies raised from Kabaret’s Fund-a-Need fundraiser and a local grant will help more families be able to send their kids to camp this year.

Our thanks go out to Don Concascia and Boy Scout Troop 93 in Uncasville and Mingfei Duan and Troop 7 in East Lyme for their assistance in clearing and building firepits for our 6 new tented campsites. Camp Turtle, Camp Eagle, Camp Bear, The Pines, The Hillside and Water’s Edge are now individual sites for campers to meet in the morning, regroup and work on group initiatives with their counselor. WCS Maintenance crew did a great job building platforms and installing tents to make this “day camping” experience even more amazing for our campers. From the vision of Executive Director, Bill Martin, to the dedication of the WCS staff and the support of community members like the Boy Scout Troops…Camp Cuheca just keeps getting better and better!
