We at Gather New Haven are heartbroken at having to cancel our regular camp this year due to the ongoing risk of contracting COVID-19 and the associated safety restrictions imposed on camps that make it impossible to gear up and safely operate. Anyone who is currently registered for camp will get full refunds (minus admin fees) issued to you as soon as possible.
With the need to cancel the regular Schooner Camp, Gather New Haven is working quickly to put in place creative, alternative programming that will be fun and meet family’s needs this summer.
You can help by letting us know what you would like to see for your children ( or yourself if you are the camper or junior counselor) by completing this survey using this link.
We look forward to having you back to our regular camp program in 2021, and to engaging you in our summer 2020 alternative programs in the meantime.

COAST QUEST SHORE PROGRAM
Search for Long Island Sound marine life as we explore the Long Wharf Nature Preserve! Coast Quest campers spend their day exploring the Long Island Sound coastline, searching for prehistoric horseshoe crabs and discovering oysters and mussels in their natural habitats! Campers play games, sing songs, and get their feet wet while learning about the local ecosystem. Campers focus on topics such as habitats, ecosystems, conservation, watersheds, water pollution, and stewardship of the coastline while having a blast exploring and making new friendships!
