With the support of the Fairfield County Community Foundation, as well as other donors, Person-to-Person is helping to create a new summer day camp at Domus Foundation, 83 Lockwood Ave., Stamford.
The camp will host approximately 60 students from low-income Stamford families with the sponsorship of Person-to-Person's Campership Program this year.
The location of the camp is convenient to the homes of many Person-to-Person clients and programming will offer a breadth of recreational and learning experiences to campers. Domus has academic programming designed to cover reading and math as per the Stamford public school curriculum. Summer school will be offered onsite, as well as breakfast and lunch. Campers will learn computer skills, creative arts, cooperative games, life skills, gardening and cooking. Additional activities include community service projects, swimming at Cove Beach, and sports, such as soccer and softball.
Now in its 44th year, the Person-to-Person program provides an enriching summer camp experience to 550 Stamford public school students from low-income families, allowing them to stay safe and engaged during the school break while their parents work. The program also helps to prevent summer learning loss.
