Please pay close attention to all details of our website and registration as we have made several changes to protocols and policies in the interest of safety. We plan to return to our traditional Summer Place camp model in 2022.

The University of Hartford offers three exciting summer camp programs for children from pre-school through 9th grade. Each program is unique, yet all share a common commitment to excellence in curriculum, staff, and facilities. All programs are based on the premise that learning and fun go hand in hand!

Camp Sessions: June 28–Aug. 6

Camp will be run in one-week sessions from June 28 through Aug. 6. Each session will have a broad theme to encourage robust experiences for connection, enrichment, and fun.

  • June 28
  • July 6 (Independence Day is observed on July 5)
  • July 12
  • July 19
  • July 26
  • August 2
