Your Donations at Work!

We work all year long for our campers. But during the Camps For Kids Campaign (April 1 through July 31), our work helps more campers because of your gifts! Here’s how we double the value of your gift to camps in our network:

The Camps For Kids matching funds program is a unique opportunity for camps to effectively double their fundraising efforts, leveraging both donor’s gifts and staff/volunteer time.

During the Campaign, Camps for Kids matches charitable donations raised by the participating camps between April 1 and July 31 each year. The match continues as long as matching funds are available or the camp reaches its approved goal within the program’s time frame.

To participate in the Campaign, donors just need to make a qualifying gift and designate where you want it applied:

  • In order to be matched, gifts must be charitable donations and must be received by Camps For Kids between April 1st and July 31st. Single contributions are matched up to $1,500 per donor.
  • Donations must be made payable to Camps For Kids and sent to our office at:
    Camps For Kids
    5960 Dearborn
    Mission, KS 66202
  • Donations may also be made at
    Again, make sure to indicate if your gift is designated for a specific camp. Or, you can also designate your gift for the match pool or as unrestricted.
  • Gifts are matched as long as matching funds are available or until the camp reaches its approved goal.
  • All camp-designated donations are forwarded in their entirety to the camp.

“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.”


“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.”


“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.”


“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”
