About Us / NEW! Camp Guide 2018

Click here for the Greenwich Free Press 2018 Summer Camp Guide.
If you are interested in listing your camp or summer program please contact  Heather Brown Lowthert at HLowthert@gmail.com for pricing and details.

The camp guide will be over the masthead from February 1, 2018 – July 31, 2018 for a total of 6 months on the leaderboard at the top of the GFP home page.

Camp Listing:
  • 200 words plus camp contact info,  link to website or camp tab, and a photo, artwork or logo (JPG).
  • Additional feature story is available for a modest fee. Includes up to 5 photos and unlimited text, links and embedded YouTube.  Once the feature story is published, it can be linked to your camp listing within the guide. We’ll refeature the camp feature story up to four times, which means it will reappear on the home page four times and in the morning newsletter four times.
  • We plan to put the Camp Guide link on Facebook and boost it several times.
  • The entire camp guide, as a piece of content, will be republished daily so, which means it will reappear in the daily newsletter every day for six months.

Rolling sign ups; the ad fee will be prorated.

If you are interested in listing your camp or summer program please contact  Heather Brown Lowthert at HLowthert@gmail.com for pricing and details.


Since launching in April 2014, Greenwich Free Press has grown steadily, becoming a force in independent news coverage.

We publish exclusively online, which is increasingly how people access news.

Our circulation is measured in impressions (page views) and unique visitors.

Snapshot of GFP traffic in real time. Spike reflects breaking news.

Google Analytics tells us how many people are on the site and what they are reading in real time, which gives us a good idea of what readers are interested in.

As of mid November, 2017  Greenwich Free Press reached 363,000+ page views a month, with 65,000 unique visitors, all through original content.

At GFP we seldom aggregate from other news sources. Our content is original to our site.

Getting our News: Newsletter, Facebook, Google Alerts and Searches

We offer a free daily newsletter subscription for 6:00am email delivery. To sign up, just click here (there is also a subscribe field on the home page). You can also view past issues here. 

Other readers follow GFP news “in-the-moment” via Twitter or in the Facebook news feed.

Since Facebook announced in mid January that their algorithms will be changing to exclude media from news feeds, we are recommending people who like to see GFP in their Facebook news feeds do this:

Click “Follow” and then choose “See First.”

Our goal is to report in the most timely manner, typically with same-day coverage.

We pledge a mix of hard news, coverage of local government, slice-of-life surprises and human interest pieces. Our property transfers are updated twice a week.

And while we can’t cover all the news, we offer coverage you won’t find elsewhere. We are often the only source of reporting for Planning & Zoning, Architectural Review Committee, Zoning Board of Appeals and Parks & Rec meetings.
