    CAMP NEW HAVEN is a free summer program to enhance community relationships between youth and law enforcement. It will run from July 5 through August 4, 2017; Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM and is open to City of New Haven boys & girls ages 8 yrs. to 13 yrs. old. Police Officers from the New Haven Police Department, Yale Police Department, Southern CT State University Police Department and volunteers from Yale Athletics will serve as mentors throughout the camp session and provide a fun and valuable summer experience. This camp will take place at Wilbur Cross High School. Students will be accepted to PAL Camp New Haven on a first come, first served basis. CAMP NEW HAVEN offers various athletic and educational activities for campers throughout the five week summer program. Our partners from federal, state, and local agencies and departments will educate campers about their organizations. They will also share important safety tips, so campers can feel safer in their communities and be better prepared to make positive decisions
    Camp days are filled with athletic activities such as basketball, soccer, swimming, and educational presentations. Each week, campers go on field trips to places such as Bowling, Roller Magic, Peabody Museum, and Quassy Amusement Park. Camp activities provide exercise and are important for the development of team-building skills. Board games are a lower-key alternative for hot days and they can help our youth develop their strategic thinking skills. Arts and crafts provide a creative outlet and help campers produce a "souvenir" for the day.
