K-CAMP

K-Camp

We believe every child should begin school ready to learn. But we know many children in Southwestern Indiana start school already behind their peers. 

K-Camp is specially designed to get children who have never attended preschool or need more time in a preschool setting ready for kindergarten in the fall. This half-day program is conducted by licensed teachers who use fun, engaging activities to improve literacy and social-emotional skills. Breakfast and lunch are provided and each student receives a free book each day. 

In 2022, 95% of K-Campers demonstrated growth in literacy skills. In addition, the program served as early intervention for 22 campers who demonstrated a need for more intensive assistance as they began their academic career. 

Expanded Locations

Thanks to our growing partnership with EVSC, K-Camp expanded to 7 schools in Vanderburgh County this year with programs at the following locations:

Caze Elementary School
Delaware Elementary School
Evans Elementary School
Fairlawn Elementary School

Lincoln School
Lodge Community School

K-Camp is also offered at Chandler Elementary School in Warrick County.
