My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Kids Across America Foundation, Branson, MO, USA
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.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Not too much I would change because I know it is improving every year. My kids would like air conditioning in their cabins. I would like to see the sessions extended back to a full 7 days instead of 5 or 6. Some, not all, of the food could be a lil better.
