LEGO® Community Fund U.S. Awards Camp Courant with $160,000 Grant

Hartford's Camp Courant logoHartford, Conn. (January 4, 2016)Hartford’s Camp Courant has received a $160,000 grant from the LEGO Community Fund U.S. to fund a capital project to renovate the existing Early Learning Center, convert the staff break room space into an additional classroom space, and to cover programmatic costs in 2016.

This investment in additional classroom space is one component of a larger facilities upgrade that will dramatically expand our ability to offer a variety of active learning opportunities to our campers throughout the summer. Programs such as Early Learning, Financial Literacy, S.T.E.M. and Healthy Choices are essential to our success as a youth development organization and this generous grant from the LEGO Community Fund U.S. will provide these programs with the space they need to reach their full potential. Providing active learning opportunities enables campers to develop a sense of empowerment and confidence, provides opportunities for them to build skills, enables them to exercise leadership, and to be fully immersed in what they are learning.

We are very grateful to the LEGO Community Fund U.S. for its generous support of our organization and its commitment to help us enhance our facilities and educational programs. Stay tuned for updates regarding this project and we look forward to unveiling the Learning Center on Opening Day 2016!
