Kiddie Keep Well Camp’s mission is to provide a safe and enriching summer camp experience to a diverse population of girls and boys from Middlesex County New Jersey, at no cost to their families. Campers are given an opportunity to explore and learn in the natural world while forging friendships and making connections with positive adult role models. We aim to cultivate resiliency, self-esteem and leadership in our campers what will extend far beyond their days at camp.
Our camp program is run entirely on donations and grants. Our primary donor is the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Thanks to our longstanding partners and support from the local communities, corporations, and individuals, we continue to offer an enriching and fun camping opportunity to the Middlesex community.
Whether through volunteering, making a donation, or by providing in-kind donations or services, you can help the Kiddie Keep Well Camp story continue!
Renting our facilities for school, corporate, or any type of group event also helps us defray the costs of Kiddie Keep Well Camp. Please visit our rentals page to find out more information.
Volunteering at KKWC is fun, challenging and rewarding. It gives you an opportunity to have a positive impact upon the lives of children and senior citizens. We will appreciate any work you can do, including helping out in our office. We have been fortunate to have the ongoing support of the community and the many volunteers who dedicate their time to assist in the preparation, preservation, and direct programming needs to the camp. Each year, we welcome nearly 500 volunteers from various corporations. The volunteers have painted, cleaned and built new projects for the camp. Some groups provide in-kind donations. Other groups and individuals provide workshops and other programming to the campers. You can help us, whether you represent a corporation or are a concerned citizen. If you would like to volunteer your time and/or services, please use the form below to contact us.
Donating to our programming, operational, or capital needs helps offer the financial support needed to provide free sessions to our campers, maintain our facilities, and maintain the day-to-day operations of the organization. To make a monetary donation today, click the link below.
