Camp New Haven
We are pleased to announce a new initiative for the children of the City of New Haven!
For the first time, Yale University Athletics has entered into a new partnership with the New Haven Police Athletic League (PAL) and NYSP to form:
CAMP NEW HAVEN.
This camp will run from July 1st through August 2nd, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
CAMP NEW HAVEN will offer 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 New Haven and be better prepared to make positive decisions. Officers from the New Haven Police Department will serve as mentors to campers, and provide a fun and learning summer experience.
Chief Dean Esserman's vision of CAMP NEW HAVEN is to help children make better choices in their lives, by providing them with the proper tools to develop positive relationships with good role models.
We are no longer accepting applications. Our final deadline was June 12, 2014. Applications were only distributed from either Police Headquarters 1 Union Avenue or substations. 2014 Applications were not available online. Please note these applications have been updated and require a completed medical form signed by the child's doctor.
Anyone who has turned in a 2014 application but has not submitted a medical form needs to do so by Orientation, June 28, 2014. If a medical form is not turned in by this time, the camper will not be allowed to participate.
All parents/guardians of accepted campers have already been notified by a member of the PAL organization. Camp Orientation for accepted campers only will take place at Wilbur Cross High School, 181 Mitchell Drive, gymnasium, on June 28, 2014 from 10a-2pm.
The new contacts for Camp New Haven 2014 are Sgt. Al McFadden 203 946 2888 and Sgt. Elisa Tuozzoli 203 946 6137.
