about our camp.png

Camp Kind is a unique day camp experience that imbues children with a love for helping others and an appreciation for the environment. Our day camp consists of two groups, Camp Explorers (7-10) and Kind Pioneers (11-13). Each group will have two staff members and a maximum of 20 kids per group.

Camp Kind accomplishes this by partnering with local charity and non-profits who provide our campers with fun, hands-on volunteer experiences and learning opportunities.

In addition Camp Kind offers traditional fun camp activities of trips, sports, crafts and drama.

Registering your child at Camp Kind, will help make a lasting impression on them that will pave the way for greater community engagement and environmental responsibility as they mature into adults.

Camp Kind runs four weekly sessions from June 25th through July 21st and is located at the Silver Hills Middle school at 12400 Huron St in Westminster.

Camp Kind is a project of Chabad of NW Metro Denver and is directed by Benjy Brackman who brings 13 years of experience in running day camps to NW Metro Denver.
