Summer Camp Locations: Northridge & Thousand Oaks

July 8 - August 2, 2019

Ages 6-14

Weekly packages starting as low as $350

Our most popular Camp Helping Hands program is our four-week service-learning summer camp now offered in two locations: Northridge and Thousand Oaks. Summer Camp embodies a holistic approach with one week dedicated to each of the following segments of our community: EARTH, PEOPLE, ANIMALS, and then we tie it all together for our last week as we investigate our COMMUNITY as a whole. Each summer, a new cohesive theme is explored as campers take part in two service field trips per week tied directly into the cohesive theme and each week’s area of emphasis.

Camp Helping Hands also offers service programs for families, schools and businesses during the nine months leading up to summer camp season.  Every CHH program leaves a positive and lasting impression. Not only do participants feel good having taken part in something greater than themselves, but they often wish to do more throughout their lifetime. Seeing the value of their contribution fosters a sense of purpose, builds self-confidence, and cultivates an empathy and compassion for the world around them.

Where Kids Make a Difference

Teaching Children Compassion and Empathy through Service-Learning

Camp Helping Hands teaches children how they can make a difference in their community and have fun doing it. By way of service-learning projects and field trips, Camp Helping Hands leaves participants with a positive and lasting impression by having them work together to help make a difference in their community where it is needed most.

Camp Helping Hands is an amazing service learning camp! As a junior counselor, I learned valuable leadership skills, the responsibility of supervising campers, and a variety of fun and easy ways to help out the community.

As a counselor, I’ve gained invaluable skills as well as relationships. CHH encourages kids to care about the community, the environment, and, most importantly, one another. My experience with CHH is a testament to the positive, universal impact Camp Helping Hands has on your development no matter the age.

Benefits of Service-Learning

Make A Difference in Yourself and Others

While CHH campers, trainees and staff enjoy numerous recreational activities, the core mission is to get young people involved with their community through service at an early age. Service-learning enhances psychological, social and emotional intellectual development. There are countless benefits and positive outcomes for all participants involved in the service-learning process.
