The Kent Land Trust and Kent Historical Society will co-sponsor two walks this month in conjunction with the historical society’s exhibit “Camps of Kent: Memories of Summer.”

A walk will be held July 25 at 2 p.m. at the former Camp Francis property, now known as the East Kent Hamlet Nature Preserve, at 39 Kent Hollow Road.

All Camp Francis alumnae are invited to attend, as well as members of the public.

This event is part of the reunion festivities planned for Camp Francis alumnae and staff.

The second walk will be when the moon is full July 31 at 7 p.m. at the Avian Preserve, located off North Kent Road.

The walk will end with a campfire and S’mores.

South Kent resident John Baker, who has been collecting and performing folk songs for many years, will lead the group in camp songs.

The walks are designed for all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult.

In case of inclement weather, the walks will be cancelled, with a notice posted on both groups’ Facebook pages and websites.

Participants are asked to wear sturdy shoes and long pants, bring a water bottle, bug spray and a flashlight.

Registration is requested by calling 860-488-9185 or emailing
