About Us

Summer of Caring Camp is a camp founded on the values of caring community service & daring to advocate for what is important to YOU. We learn about active citizenship, and grow our creative problem solving skills by looking for needs in our community and creating caring projects to help address these needs! 

Past caring projects have included:

-Planting trees

-Building bat shelters

-Crafting toys for shelter pets

-Holding pajama drives for kids in crisis

-Creating soup-in-a-jar kits for food pantries



At Summer of Caring Camp, we teach kids how to transform kindness & empathy into impactful action.
