Camps For Kids

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


Learn More About Our Match Campaign

Matching Donations — Multiplying Joy

Camps for Kids wants every Kansas City-area child, regardless of income or disability, to have the opportunity to experience the joy of summer camp.

You can help!

Join our Match CAMPaign: Between April 1 and July 31, camps can make their donations go twice as far. During this time, Camps for Kids matches gifts to participating camps dollar-for-dollar, up to $1500 per individual, until the camp has reached its approved match amount. This funding fills a critical gap for camps focused on providing the benefits of summer camp to our most vulnerable children at low or no cost.

You can help us make the match and benefit ALL the camps in our network. Just click the DONATE button below.

Or to donate to a particular camp, click on CAMPS in the menu above and then select the camp you want to help.

“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”
