Buck’s Rock Performing & Creative Arts Camp
59 Bucks Rocks Rd., Milford
Buck's Rock in Connecticut is known as a creative camp for kids who aren't looking for a crazy intense experience, as the vibe here is decidedly non-competitive. Kids will find all the standard arts at Buck's, along with some less common options like glassblowing, puppetry, printmaking, silkscreening, flame work, and book binding. Kids (11-16) can go for a half, full, or 6-week session. Buck's also has a 2-week introductory program for kids who are trying camp for the first time, as well as a 2-week program for younger ones (9-10).
65 Kenmont Rd., Kent
Not as far north as many of the historic East Coast camps, KenMont, which was established in 1924, is a top-notch all-around camp in Kent, Connecticut. It’s the brother camp of KenWood Camp for Girls (also a great option) but it has its own facilities and staff. It’s definitely more of an all-boys camp than coed—the staff estimates that the boys spend about 90% of their time at camp with other boys. There are two four-week sessions, for boys ages 8 to 15.
