Resident-overnight camp at Windham-Tolland 4-H camp in Pomfret Center, CT is a fun way for your child to make new friends, learn new skills, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Resident camp runs for seven weeks each summer (each week has it’s own special theme!) and is open to boys and girls ages 7-15.

Campers take their first step of independence by choosing their activities for the week from the fifteen included activities we offer. Special activities can be selected during registration for an additional fee.

Resident-Overnight Camp Overview
Campers should arrive on Sunday of their camp session between 2:30-4:00PM (please bring swimwear and towel!) for swim tests. After camper check-in and cabin assignment, swim test completion and good-byes have been said, all resident campers ages 9-15 will select their activities for the week — and summer camp will officially begin!
