Camp David Kansas summer camps, for kids ages 8 to 16, are uniquely designed for at-risk children and youth. Children have a chance to just be kids as they participate in swimming, archery, games, arts and crafts, and more. However, our summer camps provide much more than just fun activities.


Children learn they are not the only ones with a parent in prison, or in foster care, and they interact with staff who had similar experiences growing up. In addition, there are classes which provide children with tools to make healthy choices, process grief, and realize their value and dreams. Children learn life skills including conflict resolution and anger management and have opportunities to increase their social and emotional development by participating in group activities, and connecting with God.
