Service – Learning – Fun!

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 programs leave 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 and Have Fun Doing It!

Southern California's Premier Service-Learning Camp

Camp Helping Hands is Southern California’s premier service-learning summer camp for young children.

Camp Helping Hands teaches young children ages 6-14 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.

At Camp Helping Hands, service learning and having fun are two sides of the same coin; you can’t have one without the other! During the past 5 years as a counselor, I’ve gained invaluable skills as well as relationships. A service learning mentality is hard to develop without creativity or fun. Approaching volunteer work with fun-filled activities encourages kids to care about the community, the environment, and, most importantly, one another. My experience as a young adult apart of the program is a testament to the positive universal impact Camp Helping Hands has on your development no matter the age.
