2019 Summer Camp Guide


Camp Dakota is the premier day camp in the Greater Hartford region. At Camp Dakota, caring professional role models create experiences that help your camper build character, gain confidence, and learn friendship skills. Camp provides a safe place for kids where they can develop decision- making and problem-solving skills, learn about team work, and participate in a progressive program developed to keep their interest.
