Horizons’ six-week intensive K through 8th grade Summer Program, set on the campus of New Canaan Country School (NCCS), serves approximately 275 children and runs from the last week of June through the first week of August.
Our program is a unique blend of academics and enrichment. Unlike most summer camps, Horizons offers students the opportunity to develop their academic skills through project-based, experiential activities such as rocket-building and film-making. Unlike traditional summer school, Horizons complements the academic components of its Summer Program with a broad range of enrichment opportunities—from woodshop, studio art, and dance to weekly field trips and several overnight campouts. Students in grades K through 5 have formal swim instruction at least twice a week. Every afternoon, all Horizons students go swimming, either on campus or at the many private pools donated by generous local residents.
The Summer Program is made possible in part by the Fairfield County Community Foundation, the Richard Davoud Donchian Foundation and First County Bank Foundation.
