MISSION AND HISTORY
Our Mission: To nurture children who have survived a traumatic injury, illness, or personal loss, such as the loss of a parent or sibling.
Champions Kids Camp was founded in 2001 by Singer/Songwriters, Bill & Kim Nash, in honor of their oldest son, Billy, who survived childhood Leukemia. Through a week-long camp, children between the ages of 8 and 12 are able to heal from the “emotional scarring” they have experienced in their young lives.
Over the years, CKC has helped thousands of children to move past their trauma, which gives them improved self-esteem & social skills, reduced fear and anxiety, higher grades in school, and the tools to become a productive part of our community.
The main objective at camp is to help instill a sense of pride in every child and let them know that they’re not victims, they’re survivors, and therefore, Champions!
Champions Kids Camp is a non-profit organization that was created in the summer of 2001. 501(c)(3) #05-0541975
