With summer just around the corner, Linda Mazzeo and other members of the ECAD team are busy planning all the fun activities for the kids, age 9-13, who will attend the annual Summer Camp at the Torrington Campus. The campus is located at 149 Newfield Rd., Winsted, CT.
This year’s Summer Camp starts the week of June 16 and will continue through the week of August 18. The activities are scheduled from 9AM-4PM, Monday thru Friday.
ECAD’s campus consists of fourteen acres and is always filled with ECAD’s purpose bred Golden Retriever and Labrador puppies and Service Dogs in Training. A new litter of puppies is due in early June so extra squeals of delight from both the two-legged and four pawed attendees are expected.
Activities include: Nature based education; Puppy/Dog Education; Basic Canine Obedience, Grooming; Group Games; Outdoor Activities such as Scavenger Hunts, Slip & Slide, Picnics, and Arts & Crafts.
“The children learn teamwork, responsibility and how important Service Dogs can be to those who have disabilities,” said Linda.
Parents can register their children for one-week or more. The cost is $195.00 per week.
ECAD is a highly regarded not for profit organization that educates and places Service Dogs with people with disabilities, both visible and invisible. To date it has placed upwards of 300 Service Dogs. In addition, ECAD places Facility and Therapy Dogs in hospitals, nursing homes, schools and courthouses.
