About Camp Kind

smile on seniors.jpgCamp Kind - founded in 2015 - is a unique day camp experience that offers children the opportunity to spend a week (or more) during their long summer vacation giving back to the community by engaging in diverse and exciting volunteering projects at Denver area non-profits.

In addition to Volunteer Field Trips, throughout the week, campers participate in numerous in-camp Kindness Workshops.

Camp Kind’s activities make a lasting impression on the campers and paves the way for greater community volunteer engagement and environmental responsibility.

Another important benefit of Camp Kind is the sense of purpose and positive self-worth, that our campers acquire at Camp Kind that will help them develop  into more caring and compassionate young teens and adults.
