For 102 summers, children from all over Connecticut have come together at the Channel 3 Kids Camp. They gather under blue skies and among the pine trees in Andover, Conn. to make lasting friendships, have new experiences and create wonderful memories. Whether they are looking for a traditional OVERNIGHT CAMPING experience or a DAY CAMP program, the Channel 3 Kids Camp provides an unforgettable summer experience.

During the fall and winter months, many more children experience the vast 350 acres along the Skungamaug River as they participate in Nature’s Classroom, where science and nature are brought to life in a way that no text book possibly can. Our Camp Ventures visits local schools where science and nature are brought to life in an AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM format. Our growing programs and activities make the Channel 3 Kids Camp much more than just a place for summer fun, but a retreat to be enjoyed all year long!
