Have Fun and Practice Kindness at Summer Day Camp

Welcome to Harding’s Summer Day Camp! It is our deep hope that campers will encounter the love of Jesus as they learn to treat others with kindness and respect. We will encourage each camper to have a kindness goal for the week. No act of kindness is too small. If we can do one random act of kindness each day, we can change the world!
