Kids Who K.A.R.E. Camp is a day camp located in St. Louis, Missouri, home to over 2,000 non-profit organizations. K.A.R.E. Camp introduces children and young teens to volunteering for those organizations that have the most meaning to them. Offered for its third summer, over 150 children ages 7-14 have attended a week of K.A.R.E. Camp and performed over 4,500 volunteering hours. Through age-appropriate discussions, on-site visits, hands-on projects, and unique service opportunities, we inspire girls and boys to be grateful, compassionate and kind.
