The Camps For Kids Mission:

Camps For Kids works to assure that no Kansas City area child will be turned away from summer camp because of low income, or physical or developmental disabilities.

Camps For Kids was founded in 1980 by Marjorie Powell Allen and other community leaders, who appreciated the positive values of summer camp and wished to extend those values to children in need. Camps For Kids solicits funds from foundations, corporations, and individuals and sponsors two annual fundraising events; the Sporting KC CookOut - August 31, 2013 and the Firefly Gala and Auction - October 18, 2013.
