Description
This program is closed to further registration.

Daily Camp Information: Camp Hatten is a children’s day camp that offers children in grades K-8 weekly theme-related playtime, structured games, day trips, and weekly trips to the New London Aquatic and Fitness Center, the New London Public Library and so much more. Register week by week for themes that interest your child the most. Camp Hatten meets Monday through Friday at historic Hatten Park. Full day campers need to bring their own lunches to camp every day. Headquarters is equipped with a microwave and refrigerator for lunches. Please pack utensils if needed. Half-Day campers are welcome to join us at lunchtime (noon daily). Camp Hatten Headquarters is located at Kunkel Shelter, near the main entrance of Hatten Park, by the horseshoe pits.

Most camp activities are located in Hatten Park, the New London Aquatic and Fitness Center and the Washington Center Gym. There may also be field trips planned outside of the City of New London. Parents will be notified of all trips by a newsletter sent home with campers every Friday and in a weekly eblast for the upcoming week. Parents and friends are more than welcome to attend field trips with campers; all we need is registration and payment by the deadline of that field trip.

Flexibility: If there is another NLPR Program or an in-city, New London School District program you would like your child to participate in, we have staff specifically designated to accompany your child safely to and from other programs we offer. Please indicate the need for this service at the time of registration and in writing when you drop your child off for the first time that week.

Programming Includes:
Activities: The day is full of a wide variety of physical activities and games in a non-competitive environment. Camp Hatten offers plenty of passive activities such as arts and crafts during the day. Activities are centered on the weekly theme.
Field Trips: Occasionally campers will venture on half- or full-day trips to recreational or educational attractions in town and around the Fox Valley. Most of these field trips do not include an extra fee, unless it is required that we rent a bus. The Parks and Recreation Department also offers several field trips to the public. Campers and their families and friends are more than welcome to register. The bus picks up at Camp Hatten. These field trips do require an additional registration fee. Campers are not obligated to go on field trips that have an additional cost; there is a full day of camp scheduled for that day which your child can attend.
Swimming: Each week there are times when the campers go swimming at the New London Aquatic and Fitness Center.
Newsletter: Your child brings home newsletter each Friday that pertains to the next week. All parents with an email registered in the system receives this email each Thursday afternoon. This newsletter has a lot of valuable information, notices about field trips, any issues we have noticed at camp, things we may want your child to bring to camp for the next week...so please read it carefully each week.

Camp Counselors and Staff:
The camp will be administered by professional staff members of the New London Parks and Recreation Department and supervised by highly motivated and trained Parks and Recreation Staff. We ensure high quality supervision of all campers with a low ratio of campers to counselors. The entire Parks and Recreation Staff are trained in CPR and First Aid. Certified Lifeguards are on staff during all pool activities.
