Easton Campers Love Their Peanut Butter

EASTON, Conn. – Connor Navin likes digging holes in the sand at Sunshine Day Camp, he says, "because then you get to go in it."

The campers at the Toth Park summer program, run by the Parks and Recreation Department, make what they call the "Peanut Butter Factory" every year, said Cristina Albaladejo, who has been a counselor for four years. First the kids dig a trench in the sand, then they pour water in it, which flows into the pond to make a peanut butter-colored foam.

Camper Lucas Farmer claimed to make this year's Peanut Butter Factory.

The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with an option to stay until 5 p.m. There is an arts and crafts coordinator, an archery specialist and lifeguards ready to help the 40 to 70 campers each week. The campers also take field trips once a week, and there is a moon bounce waterslide.

"There's constant entertainment," said Jenna Lombardo, the camp's director. "It's a fun, yet relaxed environment and caters to all interests."

Campers also enjoy playing Blob Tag, where the person tagged "it" grows into a group as more and more people get tagged.
