Since 1938, the Mahackeno Outdoor Center has been the setting for our Family Y's summer day camp. For the 2013 season, Camp Mahackeno will be collaborating with another Westport institution, Earthplace, the Nature Discovery Center, so we can continue to serve our campers and families during the construction of our new Y facility at Mahackeno.
This wonderful opportunity will allow us to have yet another great summer in a beautiful outdoor setting here in Westport. Earthplace and the Family Y are working together to plan a summer with fun activities and themes, great staff and many opportunities for campers to make new friends and memories.
The program is for campers who are entering 1st grade through 8th grade. Earthplace will continue to welcome preschoolers age 3 to Kindergarten to camp.
Just minutes away from Mahackeno, located at 10 Woodside Lane, Earthplace offers acres of hiking trails, playgrounds, play spaces, wildlife exhibits and more. Campers will be able to participate in free swim 4 days a week at the Y's downtown facility and take part in weekly field trips to fun locations in our area. Camp will run in one-week sessions from 9 am to 4 pm each day. There are extended care options starting at 8 am and extending until 6 pm. Parents will drop off their children and pick them up at Earthplace.
