A week long summer camp (with touch points throughout the year) uniting urban and suburban youth to improve our communities.

CommUNITY ~ We are Stronger Together

Harnessing the Power of Unity to Elevate our Communities

 "I loved getting to work on community service projects with different people each day. People think teenagers aren't motivated to change the community, but look at us - look what we have accomplished!" ~ Sonya, Hartford

“Heads Up! Hartford really changed my life. I am friends with people I never would have met." ~ Alex, Glastonbury

About Us

Promoting Diversity

As a part of Heads Up! Hartford, campers spend time with individuals who have had a variety of experiences and come from differing backgrounds. We believe that promoting diversity helps us all to grow, learn, and become better contributors to our society. 

Developing Leaders

Studies show that to create positive, sustainable change in our complex world, we need collaborative leaders who value diversity, inclusion, and teamwork. Developing leadership skills at Heads Up! Hartford happens naturally through the program. Campers are given the opportunity to reach their full potential and over time take leadership roles in planning for and running the camp. 

Strengthening Our Community

Giving back to the communities in and around Hartford, Connecticut is an essential mission of Heads Up! Hartford. We believe that encouraging community service at a young age fosters ongoing community engagement as an adult and enables thriving communities.
