Kindness Camp

What is Kindness Camp?

The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights invites children and their caregivers to join us for Wassmuth Kindness Camp this summer! Through stories, art, movement, and music, we will learn about kindness to ourselves, our friends and family, our community, and our earth. 

The foundational human rights concepts of dignity, respect, belonging, diversity, and responsibility will be explored in fun and age-appropriate ways.

Kindness Camp is held from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. in the Marilyn Shuler Outdoor Classroom at the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial in downtown Boise.

Caregivers must stay onsite with their campers. This program is geared toward children ages 4 – 8. Younger and older siblings are welcome to join. The cost is $50/per camper, but no one will be turned away if it’s a financial hardship. Please reach out to info@wassmuthcenter.org for a scholarship.

Learning about human rights is for everyone!

“Tonight, four-year-old, Holden was trying to fall asleep and he called me into his room. He said, ‘Mama, what’s an action?’ I explained that it was something you do and gave a couple examples. He replied with, ‘Well, I need to know the actions to be an upstander.’ We spent a few minutes talking about what actions an upstander might use. I can’t tell you how much I love that these are the thoughts that he’s falling asleep to. Thank you!” —Stephanie Van Orsow
