Choose Kind camp is on a mission to provide a safe, fun, and judgment-free space for our youth. It is a space to equip them with how to be kind to themselves and others as they step into who God created them to be, and how to also identify, understand, and care for themselves physically and mentally.
Our goal is to unite our community of girls, ages 11-14 years, by making a pact to care for themselves and each other.
We exist to equip this generation of girls with the confidence to follow jesus before anyone else.
That through the love of christ and his word we can have the confidence to be who he created us to be.
choose kind camp is an extension of genuine sisters, which means you can expect the same high standards we hold for genuine sisters.
our camp schedule is perfectly balanced with inspirational teachings, actionable take-aways, fellowship, fun, and relaxation.
campers will be grouped based on age/Grade.
A camp leader's main responsibility is to invest in and build relationships with the small group of students to which they are assigned. they will do this through meals together, breakout sessions, camp adventure activities, and discipleship.
We answer the calling to find the best and safest staff. All applicants must complete an extensive application, undergo a face-to-face interview, and submit two references.
we are open to any girl age 11 - 14 who would love to join us for a fun + friendship filled day

authentic means noT changing who we are to fit in. Living in the fullness of how god created us.
Rather finding true belonging for who we are.
That is the Genuine Team - belonging for who you are.
