Camp CONNRI is a summer residential facility run by The Salvation Army in Ashfort, CT on 272 acres of wooded splendor. Also, it has a 50 acre lake for swimming, fishing and boating. Wood cabins, each equipped with modern bathroom facilities, house the children with their counselors in attached rooms. On the camp grunds are a recreation hall, a rainy-day pavillion, a spacious dining room, an infirmary with a full time nurse on duty, arts and crafts and nature lodges, a canteen (candy store), a pioneer village for overnight camping excursions, a campfire circle with seating for night programs, a well-equipped playground and waterfront facilities.

 The camp is for boys and girls from all over Connecticut and Rhode Island. They remain at the camp for a period of 6 days. The camp is multi-cultural and has a capacity of 180 campers per session. Children must be 7 to 12 years of age at the time they are attending Camp CONNRI.
