K-Camp: Free Kindergarten Readiness Program

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 2023, 82% of K-Campers demonstrated growth in literacy skills. In addition, the program served as early intervention for 48 campers who demonstrated a need for more intensive assistance as they began their academic career. 

Registration is Closed for K-Camp 2024

Half-day morning program. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Bus transportation is available.

Any child eligible to start kindergarten this fall can participate

Thanks to our continued partnership with EVSC and Warrick County School Corporation, more kids than ever can attend K-Camp in 2024. 

Warrick County camp locations include Chandler Elementary School and Oakdale Elementary School.

Vanderburgh County camp locations are different this year due to multiple construction projects in the school district. Students will attend K-Camp at Caze Elementary School, Delaware Elementary School, Harper Elementary School, Lodge Community School, or Stringtown Elementary School.  

Thanks to our 2024 K-Camp Sponsors!
