Camp Laurelwood is hosting an Education Panel with our team of CL experts.
Join us for this Zoom discussion on November 10th at 7pm EST.
"Families considering overnight camps in 2021 should give Laurelwood strong consideration. Our staff is dedicated and caring, and the depth of relationships at Laurelwood run through generations of campers and alumni. Our values-driven and welcoming environment means we have campers from around the state and across the Jewish identity spectrum. We are a true melting pot of Connecticut’s Jewish identity, and Camp gives children the opportunity to grow into their Jewish selves. Once you are connected to Laurelwood, you remain a part of the Laurelwood family."
Today our CL community recognizes staff member Amanda Thompson, who has been part of our family for 11 summers.
This past summer, Amanda worked as a Mental Health and Wellness Intern for the Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC).

The devoted team at Camp Laurelwood is currently exploring different options to safely open camp this summer to the community. One of the ideas currently being considered is "Family Camp."
The vision for Family Camp is to have families come up to camp for 5 days during the summer (Wednesday - Sunday) and enjoy CL’s beautiful 140+ acre campus. CL would offer meals, classic summer camp activities, and of course, on-campus accommodations.

"As parents ask questions about this upcoming season, we will admit that we don’t yet have all the answers. That being said, we are committed to being transparent, thoughtful, and to do what is right for our community. At this time, we have not made any changes to the dates of our Summer 2020 sessions and all programs are moving forward as planned. We know that you look forward to the summer and the important role camp plays in the lives of our campers. We appreciate the trust you place in us when sending your campers to Laurelwood."
