Camp Courant provides transportation from a dozen bus stops in Hartford, CT to Camp Courant in Farmington, CT. When campers register for Camp Courant, they select a bus stop at that is most convenient for them. Once that bus is full of registered campers, registrants have the option to either select another bus stop that has room, or they can opt to go onto the waitlist and attend Camp if a spot opens for them on their preferred bus. As with all aspects of Camp Courant's programming, transportation is provided free of charge. Campers who require accommodations can register for Camp Courant through HARC, which also provides staffing and transportation for campers.

Participants are enrolled and attend Camp Courant for the entire six-week season. If a camper misses more than three days without notification, he or she will be removed from the program, and we will add someone from the waitlist to the camp. Families may also pull their campers at the mild or end of season due to summer school requirements and alternate programs outside of Camp Courant. In this case we are able to pull waitlisted children from the registration list and notify new families of their child's start dates. This allows us to keep our enrollment filled, especially in the middle of the camp season. We will continue this practice in 2024, since we have a waitlist every year and want to service as many families as possible that we can.

More about our camp:

Founded in 1894, Hartford’s Camp Courant is the oldest and largest FREE summer day program in the nation, providing six weeks of fun and learning for children, ages 5–12, who reside in the city of Hartford. We provide transportation, two nutritious meals, and recreational, and educational activities, all at no cost to the camper or his or her family.  While there are other programs in the area that offer scholarships or discounted fees for families, Camp Courant is the only program that is entirely free for six weeks. All thirteen of our programs are designed by licensed teachers to be educational, and to decrease summer learning loss.
