I have 3 daughters 16,15 & 11 and they absolutely LOVE KAA & HG (Kids Across America & Higher Ground) the teens have been for the last 4 yrs & the 11 yr old has been twice. My girls have grown in Christ by leaps & bounds. Their prayer life gets better every year that they go. They have a better understanding of God's will & His word. The have embraced service to others & have gotten awesome leadership skills. KAA/HG is a safe place where kids are free to praise & worship God in their own way with their peers & celebrate and not be ashamed of their love of God. My kids have embraced one of the main principles taught at KAA which is "God first, others second & I am third." I can only say I had a true mountain-top experience there in which I felt the presence of God in a way that I have never felt before so much so that it is a little hard to come back down off that mountain & get back to the "real world" but what I learned & experienced there has equipped me & encouraged me to bring that spirit of God back home to let His light shine in me. I would encourage you to see for yourself what KAA/HG has to offer for adults, but especially youth because words can not do it justice.

Loved this camp! The reason I know so much about Christ and how to be a servant is because of KAA! I was exposed to so much that has shaped me to the person I am today. I also met awesome people that I still talk to today (5 years later). KAA is the best thing that has happened to me! KAA...YOU KNOW!

Truly a premiere sports camp for urban youth and their mentors! Love their Vision: To transform urban youth to impact their communities for Christ; and their Mission: To Build Christian Leaders by encouraging equipping and empowering urban youth and their mentors through camping and education! All of their camps and leadership training programs are Outstanding! They offer some 35 exciting activities and sports. KAA1 is an incredible camp for 9-12 year olds; KAA2 is an amazing camp for 13-15 year olds; KAA3 is an awesome "extreme" camp for 16-19 year olds; KAA Kaleo Camp is the greatest resource under the sun for urban group leaders and their KAA Higher Ground Leadership training camp program is directed by one of the most respected urban leadership training directors in the nation!!
