ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

The calendar may still say winter, but the Channel 3 Kids Camp is gearing up right now for summer!

A telethon hosted by Scot Haney and traffic reporter Nicole Nalepa on March 3 from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. helped raise nearly $90,000.

For more than 100 years, the camp in Andover has been giving summer camp chances to children who would otherwise be unable to afford the experience.
