Kindness Camp

Time & Location

Folsom Community Center, 52 Natoma St, Folsom, CA 95630, USA

About the Event

In this Immersive-Based Learning approach, our goal is to marry hands-on activities with age-appropriate discussions about disadvantaged groups in an effort to “fast-track” our youth’s perspective from “me” to “we”. Our program is designed for kids 5 to 12 years old, however, teens ages 13 - 18 are eligible for this opportunity. Teen Leaders will assist our Kindness Camp staff and gain valuable skills as they take a mentor-ship role with our younger campers.
