Inspire kids to experience their world.
Create projects that interest kids and
use the project to teach.
How we got started:
Back in the fall of 2014, our founder was in a breakout session at the ACA Rocky Mountain Conference discussing shooting sports at summer camps. Most of the conversation revolved around how to “spice up” the target sports. Someone mentioned how they built a slingshot range at their camp that was very popular but he also shared one of his frustrations with the slingshots. Because of the heavy use, even the high quality slingshot often broke and the staff spent much of their time fixing slingshots and not focused on the kids at the range!
The idea to have kids build their own slingshots was born. How difficult could it be to create a kit that provided all the materials and instructions to have kids build a slingshot? The answer is…more difficult than you might think. A few months later, KampKits made its debut in New Orleans at the ACA National Conference and was an instant hit with summer camps, day camps, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts!
KampKits.com is a non-profit education company whose mission is to inspire and teach young people and serve our community.
KampKits inspire young people to experience their would with interesting projects that become fun activities. Our projects are fun, hands-on and encourage kids to think and get their hands dirty. All of our projects become fun activities that can be enjoyed long after the project is complete. We inspire kids to be problem solvers, critical thinkers & inventors. Our kits allows kids to work on projects that interest them. In most cases, our kits are designed with everyday common items you can find at your local hardware store. Our Big Idea Partner program encourages kids to invent new ideas that we can turn into KampKits and share in the profits!
KampKits teach with projects that illustrate character lessons and expand student’s possibilities and interest in science, technology, engineering and math with our STEM curriculum. Our STEM kits transform camp into an extraordinary classroom that creates exciting teaching opportunities for students with hands-on projects that teach advanced concepts. Every kit comes with a character based and biblical lesson that uses the project as powerful illustration to help students remember the important lesson.
KampKits serves our community by serving the people who are developing tomorrow’s leaders; camp counselors, scout masters & teachers. We also look for partnerships with awesome organizations like Foothills Gateway who work with people with cognitive disabilities in Fort Collins, Colorado. We are working with Foothills to create jobs to manufacture and package KampKits!
