Stamford, CT - The Bartlett Summer Camps were profiled this week in the Stamford Advocate.
The Bartlett is in the fifth week of our eight-week summer camp program. This week is a popular one with our students, with our theme “Bug Out”, that focuses on all things related to insects and critters. Next week is our most popular week, “Water World,” which will include racing twig boats and having kids visit SoundWaters.
Importantly, the article focused on who our summer campers are. Half of our campers are students on a full scholarship who come from Inspirica, a homeless shelter and social services agency in Stamford.
Mike Belletzkie, our Director of Education at Bartlett, was quoted saying, “A lot of those kids don’t get to experience the forest in any way in their life. This is a huge thing where they can come for one week or all eight weeks of camp and they’ll get experience with nature that they never had before.”
