Hartford’s Camp Courant is a youth development organization and the oldest and largest FREE summer day camp in the nation.
Camp Courant’s mission is to provide Hartford children equal opportunity to participate in recreational and educational experiences that balance fun with enrichment while expanding horizons, instilling confidence, promoting healthy lifestyle choices, and inspiring big dreams for the future. Campers become part of a historic camp community that continues to grow and evolve but has also stood the test of time for 126 years. Although camp will be held virtually for the 2020 camp season, the Camp Courant Program Directors are dedicated to bringing the same fun & educational activities directly to your homes.
