The Camps For Kids Mission:

Camps For Kids works to assure that no Kansas City area child will be turned away from summer camp because of low income, or physical or developmental disabilities.

Camps For Kids was founded in 1981 by Marjorie Powell Allen and other community leaders, who appreciated the positive values of summer camp and wished to extend those values to children in need. Camps For Kids solicits funds from foundations, corporations, and individuals.  These funds are used to match camp-dedicated funds that arrive between April 1 and July 31 each year.

Testimonials

Testimonal

“As we expected camp has been WONDERFUL. The genuine smile on (my daughter’s) face in the pictures I took at drop off and the ones the counselors are sending me are testament to what an amazing thing you are doing. Thank you so very, very much! ”

“I can see what other kids have gone through and how they survived. It helps me get through & conquer. We are all survivors. That’s a gift.”

Testimonal

“When I'm at camp, I feel like a normal kid. Some kids don't get to go outside because our parents are just working too much and too hard. At home, I'm just watching movies all day. I don't want to get too old to come to Wildwood.”

Testimonal

“Without the support of Camps for Kids and the matching fund, CHD Families would be unable to provide a free medically supervised summer camp for kids with Congenital Heart Defects.”

Testimonal

“I look back on the struggle of my childhood and one of the most important and best childhood memories I have include the time spent at camp with the amazing men and women who treated me like I was normal despite my struggle”
