Day Camps

What kids take home from this camp won't fit in a backpack. Kroc Day Camps provide everything a child needs to make great memories and learn that no matter what happens in life, they are cared for.ᅠ Donations make it possible to send to camp the kids who couldn't otherwise afford it.

The Kroc Center relies on more than its paid staff to meet the mission of Joan Kroc. Mrs. Kroc was clear in her intent: The Kroc Centers were to be places where children can learn from one another, individuals can seek personal growth and development, and a place for the community to gather in leisure and fellowship in an environment that embraces the love and acceptance that Jesus Christ teaches us. As a volunteer, you can help us make that dream a reality!
