We believe every child should be ready for kindergarten. However, we know that many children in Southwestern Indiana are starting school already behind their peers. K-Camp is a collaboration between the United Way and the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation to help children who have never attended preschool or need more time in a preschool setting, prepare for kindergarten in the fall. K-Camp is FREE for all participants, but an application is required.
- K-Camp is a four week program that starts in early June and takes place from 8:30 a.m. – 12 Noon, Monday through Friday at an EVSC school. Check back for 2018 dates, location, and other details in January.
Volunteers are important to our K-Camp program by assisting teachers prepare children with little to no preschool experience for their new roles as kindergartners. During the four-week program, children will adjust to a classroom setting, practice following directions and rules, practice skills such as recognizing shapes, letters, counting and writing their names. Training for K-Camp volunteers is provided.
- Volunteers Needed: Classroom Assistants
- Time Commitment: Weekday mornings, varies based on volunteer availability
