Kids AT

Kids on a bench at Kids AT 2014

Kids AT is an annual youth camp serving the dependents of Indiana National Guard Service Members aged 9-17. 


This year there are TWO camps in TWO locations – creating TWICE the fun! 


The theme for BOTH camps will be LDRSHIP and campers will get an understanding of the Army Core Values, travel and compete as a platoon, and learn from military mentors who will lead programs and provide supervision as adult counselors.  Specific activities offered at each camp will differ slightly based on availability.  Each camp will cost $100 per camper.


Campers will be allowed to CHOOSE which camp they would like to attend, but initially, may ONLY choose one.  Each camp is a great place to spend a week in the summer! Hidden Falls Camp or Camp Potawotami.  The choice is up to you!

Also seeking Adult Volunteer Counselor at either, or BOTH locations for the week.  Responsibilities include: supervising and mentoring campers in platoon groups, instilling Army Core Values, and having FUN!  No previous Kids AT experience required.

Hidden Falls Camp is spread out on scenic hilltops and offers some great high impact activities like mountain biking and zip lines.
