What is Kind Camp About?

  • Teach the importance of Kindness and share intentional acts of Kindness while having fun! We have kids step outside their comfort zone and make an impact!
  • From the time the previous year’s Kind Camp ends, we are working on next year’s Kind Camp! We aim to provide a STRUCTURED, INTENTIONAL, AND PURPOSE-FILLED CAMP FOR ALL! We teach that we all have a story, and we don’t know all the chapters and how important it is to be included and share Kindness with them!
  • We help our Big & Little Buddies step outside their comfort zone and provide an encouraging environment for them to shine and share their purpose: to make a difference in the lives of others!
  • We teach the importance of Connecting with Others, Character Building, Life Skills, Socializing, Sportsmanship, Manners and etiquette, Patriotism, Conflict resolution, Sharing Kindness, Showing Compassion, Diversity, Team Building, Respect, and responsibility.
  • Opportunities  for “Little Buddies” (Elementary School Students Pre-K – 5th Grade) who are partnered with a “Big Buddy” (High School and College Students) and our BBITs (Middle School Students in training to become Big Buddies)
  • We are an ELECTRONIC FREE ZONE! Yes, that means no cell phones for Big Buddies, BBITs, or Little Buddies, so they can all fully engage with their Little Buddies! Cell phones are collected at the beginning of Kind Camp and returned at the end of the day.
  • We provide Daily Lessons on giving back to the community and making crafts for organizations such as Foster Care,  Special Needs, Disabilities, Illnesses, Veterans, First Responders, the Elderly, Widows, and Animal Shelters.
  • We provide an opportunity for our volunteers to earn community service hours.

Every year, we sponsor almost half of our campers. We believe every child should have a platform to share their purpose and know they have the power to make a difference. We are so grateful for all our Big and Little Buddies and their families who have been able to attend Kind Camp and excited that we have most of them return each year and always look forward to meeting new ones.

Keys To Kindness allows Middle School Students in 6th -8th Grade to partner with our Big Buddies during Kind Camp and train to become a Big Buddy. Once in 9th Grade, they can sign up as a Big Buddy. They attend our training before camp and receive additional training during Kind Camp, as well as the opportunity to earn community service hours. K2K Kind Camp is a structured and intentional summer camp that pours into all the kids that attend Kind Camp. The structure in place allows us to help each child learn new things and find their purpose while learning the importance of Kindness.

High School & College Students (Big Buddies)- Kind Camp Volunteer Form & Information

Kind Camp is a great opportunity not just for our Little Buddies to spend part of their summer making a difference and learning the importance of Kindness but also for our Big Buddies. Connecting with their Little Buddies and knowing they are impacting and making a difference for someone else is a lifelong lesson. It has been incredible to hear the stories about relationships built between little and big buddies that have lasted through the years. They also get the opportunity to earn community service hours! We have an excellent return rate on our volunteers, even having some of our college students and out-of-state volunteers return!
