What a great area! I used to go to camp in Sharon every summer, love it. When I volunteer there, we always hit Four Brothers Pizza right over the border in NY at the end of the week after the kids go home - SO yummy!! Unfortunately, everyone I know there either has no kids or has older kids, so I can't be of help in connecting you with people. Have you connected with Mindful Village? It's a group of crunchy CT families, and if I remember right, there may be a couple of families out towards you? www.mindfulvillage.org is the site. Best of luck!!!

Hi Futuremamaheather- I was wondering if the camp you are  referring to is Silver Lake? I used to go there a long time ago and was on staff one summer.

Hi Momct - yup, that's the place, I loved it there. I went as a kid, was on Camp Family for a summer, and have returned as an adult to dean and counsel.  When were you there?

 

Crrrunchberrie - Mindful Village is great, at the very least, you'll be able to hook up with some more local-ish folks online. Many of the in person get togethers happen in the Hartford area, and in fact there is an all day BBQ gathering happening in about two weeks at Wickham Park in Manchester CT. It would be a hike for you, but perhaps it would be worth it for some face time with some super nice crunchy folks :-) Let me know if you want more details.

You are indeed - that was the summer I turned 1! lol.gif I was on Camp Family in 1989. I think they still were doing the names on the ceiling until recently though. There was talk of tearing down Camp Family Cabin recently, though as far as I know that hasn't happened yet. Someone who was there this spring/summer took pictures of the lists of names and posted them on Facebook. Did you know that Alden Tyrol died recently? There's a group on Facebook with lots of wonderful stories about him, if you wanted to go read them. He was quite a character wink1.gif

It's a natural parenting group that is CT based. I know there are some families in eastern CT, but I can't remember if there are any in the norwich area.

Did you use the same user name? I can ask a membership person to see if you got stuck somewhere. It shouldn't be any harder to navigate than this site is, as it's the same basic structure - just click the discuss tab on the home page. And the initial membership is free - can't remember how long, 90 days maybe? So you shouldn't have to pay anything to access the site, just sign up.
