Camp 2021

Located on beautiful Sweetheart Lake in Tolland, 5 minutes from downtown Stafford Springs, Camp Yankee Trails provides the quintessential day camp setting. Campers swim in natural waters, play in nature, and connect with one another in a completely unique way. Days are filled with traditional camp activities like archery, arts & crafts, Gaga, campfire cooking, and waterfront activities, including fishing, boating and daily swimming!

 

We are so excited to see camp resume for 2021. In 2020 we learned a lot and had no Positive COVID-19 cases traced back to Camp Indian Valley!  We are ready to do that again. Camp 2021 will be about unplugging and reconnecting to the environment and the in-person hands-on experiences. We will be running camp from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM (see below for a sample schedule). Campers at Camp Indian Valley will have the opportunity to do some incredible activities this year. We want campers to have an immersive experience.

Campers that attend our one general one-week and two-week sessions will get a traditional camp experience. Campers will have the opportunity to for boating, frogging, swimming, river exploring, archery, arts and crafts, sports, and so many other fun activities. With Camp Yankee Trails located on Sweetheart Lake Campers will get an amazing opportunity to see some incredible wildlife.

 

We are planning on running our Leaders in Training (LIT) Program this summer. This program is designed for Teens 14-15 years old that want to learn more about camp and how to be a good leader. Applying for the program is not necessary! There are two 4-week sessions and one 2-week session. The 2-week session is by invitation only and will run at Camp Indian Valley in Ellington and does not coast anything for the camper to attend. The 4-week sessions coast $400 and campers must be able to attend at least three out of the four weeks of the program to enroll.
