This year, thanks to the City of Meriden, there is a special summer camp voucher program available for all Meriden residents, regardless of income, to receive two free weeks of summer camp per child at a Meriden camp! 

June 25th is the last day you can pick up your camp voucher at the Meriden Parks and Recreation Department. See details below.

We hope you will choose to use this voucher at Mountain Mist! When you do, not only will you receive two free weeks of traditional camp, you will also get $30 in Y bucks from the Meriden YMCA to use on programs! 

Mountain Mist Day Camp is for students in preschool through grade 9. Campers enjoy swimming, climbing the tower, archery, hiking, games, gaga ball, and so much more! Free breakfast snack and lunch is included. Bus transportation is available with safe stops throughout town. There is a camp counselor on every bus. There is a camp nurse on site and Red Cross Certified lifeguards. The camp day is 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Before and after camp care is available for an additional fee.
