KenMont and KenWood Camps: We are a premier summer camp located in Kent, CT about 2 hours from New York City. We have a 200 acre facility which includes team sports, individual sports, waterfront activities, arts programs, and outdoor adventure activities.

Our campers are from ages 8 to 15 and come from NY, NJ, CT, FL, MD, CA and various other places. Our staff is from all over the world- all across the US, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

If anyone is interested in working at a summer camp please reach out to Emily Sussman at Emily@kencamp.com. I would love to take the time to tell anyone more about our camp.

Student caregiver – Bedford

We’re looking for a caregiver to pick up our son from his preschool at 11:30 a.m. in Bedford and watch him in our home in Bedford in the afternoon until 5 PM. We’d need coverage 2-5 days per week (number is negotiable per your schedule). A car is a requirement, as we need you to pick him up from school. We would provide the car seat.

We are in the process of getting him diagnosed, but we suspect he has one or all of the following: ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder and/or ASD. He is an adorable and charming boy with lots of strengths, but he can be challenging, so we’d prefer a caregiver with special needs interest and/or experience.

We also have a 4-month-old, typically developing, daughter. She will likely be in daycare all day long, but we could ask for you to care for her too on occasion.

Since our son will likely be napping for most of the afternoon while you’re watching him (he usually takes a 3 hour nap), we hope for someone willing to do light housework around the house (laundry, dishes) while he’s sleeping. But when he’s awake, he is obviously the higher priority.

Interested candidates can contact Courtney at courtney.browne@gmail.com. We look forward to meeting you!

Saturday School Community Partnership – Volunteers Needed

Housing Families Inc. in Malden will be hosting “Saturday School” for kids in the Malden area who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Saturday school will begin March 2nd and continue for 6 weeks until April 6th. We are looking for interested community partners to come in for the 9am-12pm time block on one or more of those Saturdays to teach our kids something unique and fun. There will be about 30 kids in the program broken up into groups of 10. Each group will cycle through 3 different activities (so if a group of 4 students comes they can create 2 one hour activities and have 2 students run one group and 2 run the other). The 3rd activity will be run by our counselors which is why we only need two activities from you. Our kids will range in ages and abilities so the activity should be something that could excite any age group. Examples of things we are looking for include: fun easy science experiments, baking, sports activities, spoken word poetry, an educational scavenger hunt etc. If you are interested in helping us out with this program, or if you would like to learn more, please reach out to me at jsaropoulos@housingfamilies.org or call me at 781-333-2289 ext 203.
