About Kids-2-Kamp

In 2020, The Salvation Army of Manatee County opened a summer day camp for Manatee County children.  The goal was to begin just after Memorial Day and the close of the 2019-20 school year and end just before school resumes.  We planned to have capacity for 50 children.  Then came COVID.....

After thoughtful considering, we went ahead and held a four-week camp beginning June 30.  Themed "Mars & Beyond" the kids learned about the solar system and space exploration.  They even built and launched their own rockets!  In addition, since they could not go on field trips, several field trips were brought in for the kids.  Some were sad when summer came to a close because they enjoyed the program so much.  Best of all, each child and teacher stayed healthy!

Summer Day Camp Staff

Our 2020 Kids to Kamp session has come to a close!

Starting on June 30, 2020, The Salvation Army offered a new summer day camp for Manatee County children.  This five-week camp accepted 24 children between the ages of six and ten.

We are very happy to say the 24 children enrolled not only had fun learning and making new friends, all 24 children remained healthy and COVID-free during the camp’s duration.

The theme of this year’s camp was Mars and Beyond.  The kids learned about Mars, the solar system and about NASA’s plans to visit Mars.  They built rockets and launched them the final week of camp.  Originally, we planned field trips to local attractions like The Bishop, Mote and Big Cat Habitat.  Instead of taking the kids in vans to these places, we invited different people and organizations in to educate and entertain the children.  One week, a cultural arts group came and taught dance to the kids.  They had short lessons in small groups and came together to do a performance for staff and invited guests at lunch.  Another day, a magician who appeared on “America’s Got Talent” did a one-hour presentation of his bubble show, which included putting several of the kids inside their own bubbles.  This was a hit with both the kids and our staff!
