Hartford's Camp Courant Gets a 'Brick' Up on Summer Thanks to $100,000 Grant From The LEGO(R) Children's Fund
Date:7/17/2009

HARTFORD, Conn., July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1,200 Hartford area children who attend Camp Courant this summer have more opportunities for hands-on, minds-on exploration and fun thanks to a $100,000 grant received from the LEGO(R) Children's Fund.

Issued earlier this year, the money was earmarked to replenish supplies and equipment for arts & crafts and athletic activities, to add new resources and programs to the camp's existing curriculum and to bolster educational and personal development activities.

"This generous grant will go a long way toward making this summer both fun and a learning experience for Hartford kids," said Gene Sheehan, chairman of the camp's board of directors. "Visionary gifts such as these enable Camp Courant to offer every Hartford kid six weeks of free fun plus the possibility of having an experience that will positively affect their lives forever."

To commemorate the grant, more than 100 employees from LEGO Systems, Inc. (LSI), based in Enfield, participated in a camp clean-up day on May 21. Smaller groups of LSI employees will also sponsor "LEGO Days" this summer at camp to teach children the creative problem-solving skills employed in building with LEGO bricks and elements, then coach them through the process of designing and building their own creations.

"The LEGO Children's Fund is our way of supporting organizations that tirelessly foster, promote and advocate children's creative development," said Soren Torp Laursen, president, LEGO Systems, Inc. and LEGO Children's Fund chairman of the board. "We're thrilled to award this year's major grant to Camp Courant, in recognition of the incredible role they play in providing Hartford's children with a constructive, fun place to spend the summer months engaged in activities and programming designed to develop creative minds and innovative spirits."
