Our teen service break out sessions include working at Wayside Waifs, the KC Zoo gardens, and more.

Ages 5-15 are encouraged to attend. All ages will start and finish the day together.

Summer camp has great value in the life of a child. We use our research-based framework called Thrive{ology} to help every kid find their sparks – what makes them come alive – and discover who they are. We not only want to have fun, but help give your kids the skills and tools they need to be successful in the future.

Weekly Price: $190
