Send a Kid to Camp!
Somers Recreation & Leisure Services in conjunction with the Somers Human Services Department is committed to providing accessible and affordable summer camp and youth programs for the families of Somers.
We are currently looking for donations to provide scholarships for youth and families who may not be able to participate due to financial limitations. We believe strongly in the value of the youth experiences we offer and we want to ensure that every child has the opportunity to attend. If you are able to donate to the Recreation Subsidy Program and help a family in need, please mail your donation to Somers Recreation & Leisure Services Department, 619 Main Street, Somers CT 06071.
Thank you in advance to all donors who help keep our programs affordable and accessible to all!
**The Recreation Subsidy Program is available to Somers residents and is income based.
