Welcome to the Semper Fi Fund Kids Camp!
The Semper Fi Fund provides a unique experience for the children of our wounded, critically ill and injured service members. When an injury or illness happens to a loved one, the whole family is impacted. In our efforts to support the entire family, The Kids Camp experience helps touch the lives of our military children in a positive, powerful way.
Unfortunately, the stress experienced by the child of an injured service member is sometimes overlooked. The children must handle challenges and adversities that someone their age should not have to face alone. We hope to alleviate this stress by matching up these children with a positive, motivated high school student who has the shared experience of growing up with a military parent. Together they will not only build confidence through activities such as conquering a climbing wall, but also develop tools to be successful in school and life.
Semper Fi Fund Kids Camp Mentors are high school students, recommended for the role based on their leadership and commitment. As the child of a military family, they understand the unique needs of the program recipients. Mentors are fully trained for their role before spending the week with camp participants, beginning an adventure they will continue together throughout the school year.
The SFF Kids Camp leadership and coping principles and philosophies are woven through every activity, giving campers helpful, real-life takeaways to use when they return home. The summer camp is just the beginning. We have reunion events throughout the year in the local areas and encourage the children to be there for each other for follow-on support during the school year. Our goal is to instill a principle-centered life.
In the words of a camper: “My years here have shown me what I can do with my life. I know that I can achieve any goal that I set. I can’t wait to become a mentor so that I can inspire kids the way my mentor has inspired me!”
