“It was so uplifting to have all the happy, smiling faces at the farm. What an amazing way to teach kids the value of giving. Yesterday was a day that changed many lives. I will long remember the joy on those precious little children's faces and families working together.”

Camp Kindness Counts empowers kids to feel their thoughts, voice, and actions matter and can make a positive impact in their communities and the world. Through community service, character development and social emotional awareness, kids are inspired to lead with kindness and compassion.
Camp Kindness Counts was born in 2012 envisioning a world where kids can express their authentic selves and be confident, curious, and productive youth who will lead their communities and schools to adopt a culture of kindness and compassion.
We believe that in order to create positive change for children, everyone needs to get involved: schools, communities, parents, and of course, our kids.
- We’ve grown from working with 16 elementary students in 2012 to impacting more than 9000 kids and 500 parents and teachers during the past 8 years.
- We are partnering with UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, Bellevue School District, Eastside Pathways, and Green Redmond Partnerships, among others, to offer high quality programming to students and families.
- We work with wonderful organizations like Friends of Youth, Puget Soundkeepers and the Humane Society, serving the elderly, homeless, animals, and our environment together with our community of families.
Our 2020-2021 growth plan is to expand our programs and resources locally and nationally to reach more youth, grow our team and create a stronger influence in underserved communities. Currently half of our funding comes from generous donations and sponsorships, and we are looking for organizations or individuals who feel connected to our mission and could offer us new resources to broaden our impact. We invite you to browse our website to learn about our team, programs and the powerful work we do.
