Children participating in center activities


  • Interested in KinderCamp™? This targeted intervention program, provided free to families, is a signature early education initiative coordinated by United Way of Northern Arizona with local school districts. It is held during the month of June and facilitates successful transition for students going into kindergarten who have minimal preschool experience.


    In KinderCamp, students learn much more than their letters and numbers. They also get familiar with riding on a school bus, eating in a cafeteria setting, and working cooperatively with other students. The biggest transformation for these students, according to their parents, is their increased confidence and excitement about starting school.


    To have your child considered for KinderCamp, please fill out an ELEYO registration form at AND register your student for kindergarten.


    Where: Kinsey Elementary and Thomas Elementary 

    When: June 4, 2024 through June 28, 2024 from 8:00am-1:00pm 

    *No school on June 19th for the Juneteenth holiday
