2021 Kindergarten Countdown Camp Outcomes

This year’s Kindergarten Countdown Camp (KCC) ran from June 21 – July 29We hosted seven Kindergarten Countdown Camps in Dinwiddie (four camps), Goochland (two campsand Powhatan (one camp).  Each camp was taught by licensed instructors, teaching the necessary skills to put students on track for hitting crucial milestones such as reading by third grade and graduating high school on time. While at camp, students also received breakfast and lunch, a new book each week and a backpack full of school supplies. 


“I cannot say enough great things about KCC. My child looked forward to her free book each week, cutting and building relationships. That love of learning has been planted and she is so excited for school in September.”        

– Parent of KCC Student

From weekly workshops with parents to new books and supplies for students, this program 
equipped more young children with the skills needed to succeed in the school year ahead.
