Formerly named USAI, Kamp for Kids was founded in 1997 as a family-owned business. In 2013 Kamp for Kids became a charitable organization and later a non-profit in 2018. Tim and Penni Morton direct Kamp for Kids and have been happily married for 22 years. There's never a dull moment with 5 kids and 4 grandchildren!
Tim & Penni are proud to have both received national certification with DBHIDS Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services. The Youth Mental Health First Aid program is designed for adults who regularly interact with young people to help them in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
At Kamp for Kids, we aim to help many different audiences, from youth at risk to children with Autism.
Kamp For Kids achieves its mission by providing free events, offering direct assistance, and facilitating programs for today's youth by celebrating parities and differences.
We are a non-profit dedicated to helping change and empower a child's life. We believe that all kids are special and unique.
We offer free camps and fun programs for children with Autism, underserved youth, and their families. Our vision is to respect every individual regardless of the differences between us. We hope to build confidence and self-esteem and forge leadership skills by establishing trust.
"Thank you so much for the awesome camping weekend. Everyone in the family is super impressed and so grateful for all you do to make the families feel welcome and included. This is such a memorable trip and experience!"
Our impact includes empowering special needs children, fostering a supportive community, nurturing personal growth, and creating lasting memories. Join us in making a difference in the lives of these incredible kids!
