ABOUT CAMP KINxFOLK
Camp Kinxfolk is for us by us.
We know the importance of play and communication, and we use it to address our campers’ mental health. Our goal is to carve out parts of the world and create a safe space for those who look like us and share our experiences. We use arts and crafts, land and water sports, team building games, and agriculture to get youth out of their comfort zones and provide a space where their vulnerability is the segue to honest conversations.
We take youth out of the city and into the country side. The intention is to help campers break out of the bubble the city tends creates and address traumas outside the walls they were created in. We allow campers space, literally and figuratively, to discover themselves and each other away from distractions and day to day social and financial responsibilities.
Choosing to make our spaces Black focused gives the power back to our campers. They can be comforted knowing here they are given priority. Here, there is no fight for attention or to be appreciated. Here, they don’t have to explain themselves. This is done by having all Black instructors, Black chefs and attempting to keep all camp spaces as Black as possible.
