Albert informed the free summer day camp last week she will depart from her role at the end of the first quarter of 2020 before moving to England, where her husband, Justin, has accepted a new job with his current employer.

Camp Courant’s board of directors will launch a statewide search for Albert’s successor, and expects to name her replacement before the camp’s 126th season in June.

Albert, who will help with the transition in a consulting role, was named to HBJ’s 40 Under Forty class of 2014. Camp Courant and Foodshare also recently earned HBJ’s Nonprofit Collaboration of the Year award.

“The seven years I have spent at Hartford’s Camp Courant, including the past five as CEO, have been beyond exhilarating, and it has been an honor to work on behalf of Hartford’s youth during that time,” Albert said in a statement.

“While it will be sad to leave when Justin and I move overseas, I am heartened to have an energetic and engaged board of directors, and I know the future of the nation’s oldest free summer day camp will be filled with even more success,” she continued.

Founded in 1894, Camp Courant records annual revenues of more than $1.2 million. It currently serves Hartford youths ages five to 12.
