Kinderland Committees

To get more involved in the Kinderland community, please consider joining one of the following committees. Committees meet regularly, about once per month. Committees are made up of Board members and members of the Kinderland community. Meeting dates are announced in the Upcoming Events section of the website.

The Fundraising Committee brainstorms fundraising ideas, plans and provides resources for fundraising events and campaigns, and hosts fundraising events for Camp Kinderland.

The Camper Recruitment Committee organizes and hosts open houses for prospective camper families, reaches out to personal networks to raise awareness about Camp Kinderland, and represents Camp Kinderland at camp fairs.

The Building Committee will spend time working with staff to determine what the needs and priorities of the camp facility are, then discuss when and where certain upgrades to the facility will take place in the context of a long-term strategic building plan.

The Arts & Activism Festival Planning Committee will organize a 3-day music festival that will take place over Labor Day weekend in 2016. This will involve developing communications and marketing, seeking out talent, production, organizing volunteers for the weekend, and seeking sponsors and funding.

The Conscious Eating Committee will re-evaluate the camp‘s current approach to food and come up with more local, nutritious, and environmentally conscious ways to feed campers and staff each summer.

The Environmental Sustainability Committee will research and implement ways to improve our relationship with the environment, including composting, recycling, buying local, and zero-waste.

Contact to join or learn more about any of these committees. We hope you can come to one of our upcoming meetings!
