Serving More Kids


Attention Patients in Treatment Through Summer 2021:

Over the past couple years, as founder and director of Pompositticut Farm Day Camp, I have personally become more aware of the hardships and challenges patients face when undergoing chemotherapy. Managing one’s home life, school and family is challenging itself in today’s world, not to mention the added difficulties one experiences through the hardship of receiving such treatment.

Coupled with my personal challenges, May 22, 2021 will mark the anniversary of the passing of my mother, Shirley Kane and in her memory we have established a program through the camp entitled “Serving More Kids”. With this in mind, our goal is to provide a wholesome camp experience for children whose custodial caregiver will be undergoing cancer treatments.

Beginning in summer 2013, we piloted this program in the memory of my mother by providing cancer patients complete tuition coverage and will continue to do so for the summer of 2016. Only minimal administrative fees will be required per session, which covers the cost of insurance for the child.  I am sending you this letter to ask you to endorse this program and help spread the word to viable patients who could benefit from our offer. Attached is the form required to begin the process.  Feel free to pass them along to potential candidates. All other camp forms can be found on our website, Your assistance is most appreciated by all.

Pompositticut has been an established business for 40 years and is an accredited day camp providing children with full-service programming that includes several auxiliary specialty programs. Having been a part of thousands of children lives in experiencing the joys and freedom of summer camp, we are honored to attempt to contribute positive aspects to the lives of families who will be challenged this summer.
