Camp Courant Buddy Bash

As the Director of Community Engagement for Hartford’s Camp Courant from 2015-2019, we hosted our annual Buddy Bash Gala fundraiser every September.

The Buddy Bash celebration highlights the amazing work of Camp Courant over the last 125 years+, and features lavish food from over 20 area restaurants, delicious brews, great entertainment, and exciting silent auction items, all in support of Hartford’s young people.

During my time with this incredible organization, we increased revenue from this annual event by 50% year-over-year through corporate sponsorships, silent auction items, and individual donors.

Hartford’s Camp Courant is a youth development organization and the oldest and largest FREE summer day camp in the nation. Camp Courant’s mission is 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.
