Open house at Camp Katoya coming up

Girl Scouts of Connecticut will host an open house at Camp Katoya in Milford on Sunday, May 4 from 1 to 4 p.m.

The camp will be open for girls and families to attend and discover the summer camp programs designed for all girls entering grades 1-12. The open house will allow families to tour the facilities, meet with camp directors and staff members, and learn about camp life.

The camp is located at 71 Country Lane in Milford. The camp features 57 acres of woodlands, two small ponds, a swimming pool, a nature hut, and a 40-station nature trail. Programs in horseback riding and cooking are available.

This summer also includes Guard Start, a program for girls to learn water safety skills in a preparatory life-guarding course. The new pool and shower house will be ready by early June. Sue Stevens and Sally Onofrio are returning as camp directors.

Free bus service is included for day campers. Stops and times, as well as a complete listing of individual camp programs, may be found on Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s website at
