THIS RACE BENEFITS
Engaging during the summer months in active learning and fun activities outdoors in nature promotes positive youth development and critical life skills. This is something that every child, not just children whose families can afford to send them to summer camp, should be able to experience. As the largest FREE summer day camp in the nation, your support in the 5K/Kids Fun Run will help to fund operations and cover costs, such as the 14 buses, 700+ nutritious breakfasts and lunches, wages for seasonal staff, and maintenance of their beautiful campgrounds and facilities.
Hartford’s Camp Courant is an independent non-profit youth development organization with a mission 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. Over a six week period during the summer months, 750 of Hartford’s children engage in the traditional Camp programming, such as swimming, arts & crafts, sports and because of the support of the community, they are also able to participate in over a dozen educational programs ranging from Nature to Financial Literacy all taught by certified teachers, many of which have been with Camp for 20+ years. Camp Courant has been in operation for over 125 years and has served 500,000+ campers with the continued belief that by providing a transformative experience it can alter the trajectory of a child’s life.
