PROSPECT - As the summer season begins, schools and companies have begun to plan for their end-of-year trips and picnics, and one popular destination is tucked away in the central Connecticut countryside. Known as Holiday Hill, the resort has been offering residents a camp getaway day since 1954.
The camp and resort aims to provide a private experience by letting guests either rent the area completely to themselves or share it between a few smaller groups. Both the resort and day camp opened at the same time in 1954 and have stayed family-owned since then, according to Holiday Hill director Michael Youngman. In the years since its opening, the campground has specialized in group events like company picnics, church picnics, school outings, family reunions and union picnics. Guests are usually given around seven hours in the camp, depending on their needs.
