Hartford’s Camp Courant is the largest free day camp in the nation, serving up to 2,000 Hartford children during the summer season. Children ages 5 through 12, who live in the city of Hartford, participate in a variety of recreational, educational and cultural programs at the campsite in Farmington. Transportation, two nutritious meals, health care and a bathing suit are provided to every child who needs one. All of the programs are geared towards developing self-esteem, building positive relationships and having fun. Contributions from the community are needed each year to maintain this free summer program for Hartford children.
