Loos Donates to Camp Woodstock in Centennial Year

Pomfret, CT, June 23, 2022 — As eastern Connecticut children pack their bags and prepare for another summer at camp, Pomfret’s Loos & Company is pleased to be able to help a few more children have that experience.

Loos & Company recently donated $500 to Camp Woodstock YMCA to help children of all circumstances experience the joy of summer camp.

“Camp Woodstock is known as ‘The Friendship Camp,’” Executive Director Anthony Gronski said. “Here, kids can just be kids. They can disconnect from the rest of the world.”

To make that possible, the camp offers a financial aid scholarship program. For the 2022 summer camp season, the camp has awarded over $110,000 in discounted camp for youngsters.

Loos & Company is proud to give local children the opportunity to experience summer camp, regardless of their financial circumstances.

“We hope to collect and give out even more money,” Gronski said. “These donations from our neighbors level the playing field so all kids have a chance to go to camp.”

Marketing Assistant Anne Nichols toured the camp and learned about all the activities offered, from archery and boating to yoga. Gronski said camp teaches children how to live in a community, negotiate, compromise, relax, and more.

“Camp Woodstock is a local landmark and has touched the lives of many kids, and adults, in the Pomfret area over the years,” Nichols said. “We’re pleased to help keep these traditions alive through the years.”

In fact, the camp is celebrating its 100th year of operation. Although much has changed during the camp’s time, its values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility have not.

The camp is a non-profit and follows the policies and procedures led by the YMCA organization.

During the last week, alumni and donors have congregated at the camp, located at 42 Camp Road in Woodstock Valley, to celebrate the milestone anniversary.
The summer camp season officially starts June 26 and runs through the middle of August.

Gronski said he expects around 1,000 children to flow through the camp this summer, ranging in ages from 6 to 15 years old.
