Waterford – Summerfest, a benefit for Camp Harkness, will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. July 26 at the camp.

The event will include performances by the Boston rock band New Watch City and other special guests, local crafters and vendors, visits with llamas, and tours of the grounds on the Camp Harkness Sunshine Train. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Admission is $5.

Camp Harkness provides services for people with disabilities and support for families. More than 30,000 people use the park annually for swimming, hiking, camping and general outdoor fun. Money raised at Summerfest will go toward the Camp Harkness Fund, a 501(c)3 dedicated to providing opportunities to those in need through camperships, adapted equipment and special projects.

Recently, a wheelchair accessible labyrinth sensory garden was installed through fundraising efforts and community involvement.

Crafters who would like to sell wares at the festival should call (860) 443-7818.

I don't have a favorite. The heat, the crowds, humbug. I'll have a cookout at home.
