Camp Kindness Day 2018

On July 24 2018, the camp community will be able to participate in Camp Kindness Day – a new social event that will highlight the practice of intentional kindness that happens every day at American camps year-round. 

We want to demonstrate to the world the great work that camps are doing to teach kindness in engaging, simple, repeatable and high impact ways that live on in the daily lives of campers and staff members when they return home.

More information will be available soon about this event and how your camp can participate.
