Camp Totokett is a free one-week camp for children from New Haven.

Founded in 1996 by The First Congregational Church of Branford and held yearly at Killam's Point, the Church's waterfront property in Branford, camp offers a respite from the stress, trauma and responsibilities which these children face daily. Recognizing the impact of trauma and stress on children, Camp Totokett recently offered the camping experience to a small number of refugee children, relocated to New Haven through Integrated Refugee Immigration Services.

Camp Totokett also seeks to promote individual, family and community connections between urban and suburban participants.

Our camp staff is mainly community volunteers, including high school and college students, teachers, nurses, physicians and clergy.

Through bringing together diverse urban and suburban groups, camp serves strongly as a bridge spanning geographic, socioeconomic, racial and religious lines. All participants develop new understandings, compassion, lasting friendships and respect for each other.

Volunteers are always needed. High school students who have completed grade 9 are eligible to be mentors and adults who either like to work with children in a specific age group setting or have other skills in the areas of waterfront, arts and crafts, music, fishing, grant writing etc. are encouraged to become a part of the camp.
