Jenn paragone

Camp Director

“I am so honored to be the Camp Director at Hartford County 4-H Camp! Camp is a such a special place for me and my family. I have been a camper, counselor, staff member, board member, and all 3 boys are currently campers or counselors. I lover seeing the magic of camp on the faces of campers, counselors, and staff. I am proud to be a part of Hartford County 4-H Camp. I am looking forward to seeing the smiles on the faces of campers. All the work behind the scenes during the off-season can be exhausting, but it is well worth it when you see how happy campers are to be at camp!

Lis Diemer

Camp Director

My first summer at camp was in 1993 when I came with one friend. The next summer I attended the “Two Weeker” session and just kept coming back. As a staff member I taught street hockey and newspaper and was the Girls Cabin Coordinator. After taking a few summers off I retured as the Associate Camp Director and then the Director. I stopped when I had my son, Dylan, but joined the Board of Trustees. I am looking forward to helping to create lifelong memories and friendships for this summer’s campers, counselors and staff as I take on a director role again this summer!


Associate Director

Hi I’m Nadia! I am the Associate Director at Hartford County 4-H Camp. I help Jenn and Lis plan and run camp, we are a dream team! I also run the Teen Counselor Leadership Training Program. I love cheese, reading, and squirrels. Camp is my favorite place in the world and I am so excited to continue to make the best better this summer!

After graduation, Addison was a barn manager for a busy boarding, lesson, and sales barn before returning home to Connecticut to join the staff of an equine sports medicine practice as an equine ambulatory veterinary technician. Addison is now a barn manager and assistant trainer at Skyz the Limit Performance Horses in South Windsor.

Addison is excited to return for her 3rd summer as director and to continue to add some fresh ideas and get more people involved in horses.
