‘Send a Kid to Camp Community Day’ is being held today

FARMINGTON -- Camp Courant is working to raise awareness for their six-week summer program for Hartford's kids by holding "Send a Kid to Camp Community Day".

The totally free summer camp celebrated its 123rd year offering a fun and safe space for Hartford area kids. This year campers are enjoying the nearly new pool and a brand new playground which was christened as the kids arrived on site. This year the camp, which is largely funded by both private and corporate donations, expects around 600 kids a day for its annual six-week run.

"So many kids in Hartford don't get the opportunity to come to summer camp," said McKinley Albert, Camp Courant's executive director.
