Kars4Kids‘ vision is to give our children the ability to succeed in life. We focus on educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children, their families and their communities, looking at the big picture of our children‘s development and the environment they grow up in. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.

Petting Zoo Therapy

Our summer camp menagerie is an integral part of building happy, emotionally healthy children. Children find it soothing to work with and cuddle the animals. It makes them feel capable when an animal responds to their touch and voice. Our unique brand of pet therapy bolsters campers' self-esteem and translates into better relationships with their peers.

There‘s always something going on at Kars4Kids, whether it‘s a weekend reunion for teenage girls, an exercise class at ChillZone, or a back-to-school backpack giveaway. There are fun and worthwhile programs for every age, from moms and dads, to teens, boys and girls. Something for everyone in the family all year long is our primary aim.
