Activities

Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KECamps are exactly alike!  Our days begin with Hello Camp, a morning meeting of sorts where, through an assortment of organized activities, campers and staff get to know each other, review the day’s schedule and sing our special camp song! Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”.   The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include:

Wacky Wednesdays

Every Wednesday at camp is a wacky one with a different festive theme – a true highlight of each week! Check out this summer’s Wacky Wednesday Calendar!

Thankful Thursdays

We are excited to announce the return of Thankful Thursdays into our camp program! In true camp spirit, every Thursday campers will have the chance to give back to their community by working together on a simple, fun and rewarding community service project. Check out this summer’s Thankful Thursday Calendar!

Lunch & Snacks

The club will provide a delicious lunch, afternoon snack and beverage daily. There will be a lunch charge of $30 per week per child. These charges will be billed to your club member account. 

Please note that we are a “nut aware” camp.   We ask that you do not pack any food for your child that contains nuts.   Likewise, the lunches and snacks served by the club will not contain any nuts.   If your child has a food allergy and you have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Packing List

KECamps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

Extra Snacks (Optional)
Flotation Vest: If you know that your child will be classified as a Bogey (our term for Non-Swimmer) this summer or you prefer your child to be classified this way, please pack a flotation vest for use in the Shallow End of the pool.
Golf Clubs (Optional)
Sunscreen: Spray for body is preferred
Swimsuit
Towel
Water Bottle

Registration & Payments

Registration for Summer 2019 is now open and will continue until we are full.  So, you may add additional weeks as the summer goes on. You must be enrolled in advance, however, in order to attend camp. We are happy to accept online registrations up until the night before the start of each week of camp, provided that space is available.

Full payment is due upon registration.  This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $40 which includes 2 camp t-shirts. We accept American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.

If your child has special needs or will require extra assistance while at camp, please contact us before you enroll to discuss!

Cancellations & Refunds

All requests for cancellations or changes must be made in writing to our office via email at info@kecamps.com.  Cancellations made by June 23, 2019 will be refunded in full (less the registration fee).   After that, there are no refunds. We will, however, always offer a credit towards a future week (if space is available) or for next summer.

CT Camper Health Form Supplement

Download this health form, print, complete and fax or email back to us as soon as you can and definitely before camp begins. You may also log back in to the registration site after you have enrolled your child to upload the paperwork there. We will ask for some medical information about your child during the online registration process. In addition, CT state law requires that this supplement be on file for every camper. We thank you for your cooperation in getting this form to us in a timely manner.

Authorization to Administer Medication Form

Should your child require any medication during the camp day (including an Epi-Pen or Inhaler), we ask that you complete this form and send it directly to our office or hand it to your Camp Director on your child’s first day of camp.

Meet Your Camp Director

Hello Campers and Families,

My name is Dennis Annicelli, and I am thrilled to be your Director this summer. I received a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern Connecticut State University in Physical Education/Health and I also earned a Master of Science degree in Special Education from Cambridge College. For the last eight years, I have been teaching physical education and health at S.A.N.D. School in Hartford. In my fifth year of teaching I was selected S.A.N.D. School Teacher of the Year which was a great honor for me. I teach students in grades K-8 and every day my gymnasium and classroom are packed with excitement. It is important to me as a teacher that I ensure that all my students have a good time and enjoy physical activities. We are always on the move and I love to see my students motivated and having fun.

One of the things I love about teaching is that my job is to help children achieve their full potential and to help them feel happier and better about themselves. I have mutual respect for all my students, I am easy to talk to, enthusiastic and I will do the same throughout the summer at camp. I am very patient, have a good sense of humor and I understand that all children are different. If there are any special activities or talents that you have or anything that you would like to do at camp, please let me know and we can work on setting up those activities.

I also coach the S.A.N.D. School basketball team. This year we came in fourth place in the city of Hartford basketball tournament. My team won the Sportsmanship Award and I received an award for Coach of the Year for middle school coaches in Hartford. We were all really excited because we work to be not only a team, but a family. I coach high school baseball in Hartford and love that just as much. I love both sports equally and love to see the growth in the players.

In November I got engaged to my fiance, Diandra, and we adopted a rescue dog from Puerto Rico. Her name is Luna and she was left behind when Hurricane Maria hit the island in 2017. We are looking to rescue another dog so that Luna has someone to play with. In my spare time, I play on a men’s basketball team and I also play softball during the summer, but my favorite activity for summer is golfing. Diandra and I like to go on vacations; we recently went to Mexico, and we try to discover new places all the time; another favorite is to visit beaches and relax when we can. We love to go out to dinner and try all different kinds of food. We both like to spend time with our families and celebrate birthdays, holidays and special visits.

I look forward to meeting all of you and having lots of fun this summer. I can’t wait to be outdoors enjoying the warm
weather, making new friends, exploring new activities and creating summer memories with all of you.

See you at camp!

Dennis Annicelli
