You’re Invited: See KinderCamp in Action

It has been 14 years since United Way of Northern Arizona and its community and school partners launched the KinderCamp™ program. In that time, this four-week summer boot-camp has helped thousands of Pre-K children prepare for their first day of kindergarten – academically, socially and emotionally.

Now you have a chance to see this highly effective and impactful program up close and personal by taking a tour at one of our longtime KinderCamp schools. 

Children who graduate are less likely to suffer separation anxiety from their parents in the first days of school, are comfortable with the demands of a school day schedule and demonstrate a new-found confidence in the classroom.

Children gain the school readiness skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.

Over 14 summers, the KinderCamp initiative has expanded to include classes in Williams, Winslow, Page, and Lakeside.

Tours of KinderCamp classes are being conducted at Thomas and Killip elementary schools in Flagstaff on these dates:

  • Monday, June 18 – 9:30 am
  • Wednesday, June 20 – 9:30 am and Noon
  • Thursday, June 21 – 9 am and Noon
  • Friday, June 22 – 9 am and Noon
  • Tuesday, June 26 – 9 am and Noon
