Newtown Parks and Recreation Camp Support

At the request of the Town of Newtown, starting in the summer of 2013 as part of the recovery response, NYFS has provided a counselor to the two Newtown Parks and Recreation day camps. In this capacity, we have been able to assist with the planning of camp activities in a trauma-informed manner, and provide emotional and behavioral support to campers, camp counselors and camp staff as needed.
