For 100 years, Camp Claire has provided children with some of the best summers of their lives! Camp Claire is a rustic, old-fashioned summer camp that overlooks beautiful Hamburg Cove in Lyme. It is a place steeped in traditional family values and gives kids the freedom to be kids. With a staff hand-picked by the director, counselors create daily programs and classes to inspire and enrich the lives of each and every camper.
The camp offers one week, day and overnight camping experiences, with an extension option. Classes include: swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, arts & crafts, sports, low ropes, camp craft and more.
Camp Claire offers both a day camp or overnight camp for children aged 7-14. Day campers participate in daily classes and afternoon programs the same as the residential campers. They are served lunch every day and have a bunk bed to put their belongings on, which they also use for a brief rest period after lunch. Every Wednesday, day campers have the option to stay over for the night so they can experience an evening program, and what it is like to sleepover in the cabins.
Camp Claire offers one week overnight sessions throughout the summer starting in early July for campers ages 7-14. Campers arrive on Sunday, and stay until the following Saturday. They participate in several different classes of their own choosing, along with all camp activities during the afternoon, and evening. From time to time the whole camp goes on a day picnic by canoe to a sandbar on the Connecticut River. At the end of every day, the whole camp gathers to listen to stories, hear poems, learn songs and talk about how much fun they had that day. Camp Claire also offers LIT and CIT programs for older children. Please go to www.campclaire.org for more information.
