Programs / Activities
Camp Day: 9:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.
Every day at Camp MOE is filled with adventures, challenges and fun through a variety of activities. All campers are placed in small groups (PDF) determined by their age, abilities, development and the grade they will be entering in the fall. Rain or shine, we are at camp.
Lower Camp: entering 1st and 2nd grades
Campers with and without special needs who are entering 1st and 2nd grades (and campers who have turned 5 as of June 1st, 2O17) will enjoy a structured day including swimming lessons, arts and crafts, music, gaga, nature and other various activities including community programs. Our campers stay with their counselors all day ratio 1:4.
Upper Camp: entering 3rd thru 7th grades
Campers with and without special needs who are entering 3rd through 7th grades in the fall will have the opportunity to choose the activities they participate in. Some of the activities may be: arts and crafts, dance, sports, music, archery, boating, gaga and much more. Campers in Upper Camp also take swimming lessons and have free swim daily.
Comanche: entering 8th thru 9th grades
Campers who are entering 8th through 9th grades participate in this program. This group is awarded more responsibility through our mentorship program. The group participates in team building and helping the younger campers learn new games and activities.
Counselor-In-Training: entering 10th grade
Campers entering 10th grade will be guided through a Leadership Development Program by Kelly O’Heron, a 6-year veteran of Camp MOE. The goal of the program is to teach our CIT’s the "ins and outs" of being a camp counselor through hands-on experiences. There is a CIT Application and an interview (PDF).
Teen Trekkers: campers w/special needs, ages 16 to 21
This year our Teen Trekker program will be based out of our Main Office at 314 Main Street in Torrington. The program will be community based with trips throughout the county, and each Wednesday spending the day at camp. For the 5th summer, Robin Pedone will be leading the Teen Trekker program. Call (860) 482-9364 ext. 37 for further information.
TREES (Terrific Readers Emerge Everyday in the Summer)
We, at Camp MOE, understand the importance of reading and making reading a fun part of everyone’s daily routine. Camp MOE’s literacy program is open to campers entering 3rd through 7th grades in the fall, at an additional cost, who would like to maintain or improve their reading skills over the summer vacation. Campers enrolled in this program will meet a qualified staff member for seven 35-minute classes across a two-week session.
Please call the office for further information at (860) 618-2800.
Lunch is offered free of charge to all campers 18 years of age and younger through Education Connection. Your child may elect to bring his/her own lunch to camp; however, we ask that you send it in a clearly marked brown paper bag. All lunches are stored in refrigeration per CT state regulation.
