Kind Kamp is a Brighter Future Foundation program for students ages 8-14.

Kind Kamp shares science based information with students in an easy to digest format featuring theatrical presentations, visual arts, and hands on learning in an actual garden and with live animals.

Kids are encouraged to practice what they learn at home and share their successes and challenges with the Kind Kamp family during our weekly chat circles.
