I have been involved with this program one way or another since I was a child. My mother (Lyn McNaught) spent over 30 years as executive director of this program at the New Canaan Country School in New Canaan, CT. I worked there as a counselor as a teenager and Horizons was in integral part of my life until my mother retired. She has gone on to serve on the board of Horizons National as Horizons now has programs all over the United States.

I have seen first hand how this program helps inner city children. It is an opportunity for them to get out of their environment and spend 6 weeks in the summer learning and interacting with others. The academic program is outstanding and children enter school in the fall ahead of their peers (or all caught up if they were behind). They also have the opportunity to swim and do outdoor activities. The friendships they ofen make there can last a lifetime. It is truly unlike any "camp" experience that a child can have.

The Great!
