Hartford's Camp Courant Buddy Bash Celebration

We invite you to help us raise the funds necessary to provide a FREE summer experience for Hartford’s children.  Next summer our campers will need us more than ever so join us for a safe social distancing family friendly fundraiser at Dunkin Donuts Park this September.  Purchase a table on the Yard Goat’s diamond, enjoy a delicious dinner, snacks, cocktails, hear heartwarming stories of camp, bid on exciting silent auction items, then grab a blanket, relax on the green, and watch an entertaining family film, THE SANDLOT!

All the proceeds from this event will help make it possible for us to provide 700+ of Hartford's kids with a transformative summer experience on our campgrounds in Farmington next summer.  Kids ages 5-12 will participate in fun and educational programming; such as Music & Performing Arts, Finance, STEM & Manufacturing, Computers, Healthy Choices, Yoga, Swimming Lessons, and Nature. We'll continue to grow and enhance our Junior Leader Program for teens 13-15.  With your support every child, regardless of economic or social circumstance will have the opportunity to have fun, learn, make friends, and be mentored in a safe, happy environment that creates a sense of wellbeing and belonging.   

Thank you to all of our event supporters, sponsors, businesses and individuals of our community that so generously donated items or purchased items from our auction. We are grateful for your support.

The warm summer days at Hartford's Camp Courant are filled with moments of excitement, fun, friendship, and self-confidence.  As the oldest and largest FREE summer day camp in the nation, Camp Courant provides a safe, exciting, and educational environment in which Hartford's youth, ages five (5) through twelve (12), participate in active learning opportunities and fun activities focused on positive youth development and healthy lifestyle choices.  As a youth development organization, Camp Courant combines traditional camp activities such as swimming, arts & crafts, and sports with over a dozen enrichment programs that expose campers to ideas and opportunities which spark their imaginations and inspires them to be their best in a safe, nurturing, fresh-air setting.  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.
