We will enhance the lives of children in underserved areas by providing opportunities to experience the sport and sportsmanship of tennis. Foster a love for the game while encouraging self advocacy, commitment, and teamwork.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to introducing tennis to children and bringing tennis back to the public courts.
2016 Summer Goals

2016 Fall Goals
KC’s Kamp for Kids is expanding. We will be offering tennis play and instruction in after school programs in the community centers of north and south St. Petersburg, as well as the Police Athletic Leagues (PAL). This will allow us to increase in number between 200-250 children that we will be able to serve. Classes in self advocacy for the children will be introduced during their tennis time.
In May 2016 we became a member of the National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) Network through the USTA. For our learning component we will be teaching EarthBox gardening.
KC’s Kamp is a CTA/NJTL Network member.
