Remember summer? The glorious care-free days that seemed to stretch forever? How about the games, canoeing and cabin-camaraderie of summer camp?
The Connecticut Police Foundation and the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association are teaming up to send 50 of the state’s most economically disadvantaged children to summer camp for a week. The children will spend a week making friends and participating in recreational and educational activities. For many this will be the first time they get out of the city where they live and spend some quality time with nature, according to Trumbull Chief Michael Lombardo, who is one of those who are heading the campaign.
