Morning senior campers should be dropped off on the west end of our main building (follow the signage) and afternoon junior campers should meet in the lobby area prior to the start of camp.

What if my child misses a class? Please let us know if your child will miss any class. Refunds cannot be made for missed classes.
May parents sit in and watch the campers? Parents are asked not to accompany their child to camp as it is often disruptive to the other students. If you have concerns or questions about camp, you are welcome to speak to the teachers.
My child attended Camp Kindness last summer, will it be different this year? Yes! The core curriculum remains the same, but new features, speakers, games, crafts and animals are also offered to keep camps fresh and exciting! We find that over one-third of our campers are “repeat campers” because they enjoy coming to camp every year!
