CoolineKids Summer Camp 2023

A New Type Of Summer Camp. Tailored To The Kids Of East Palo Alto.

Free Camp, Always & Forever!

CoolineKids Summer Camps will never charge a single family for any of our direct programs. We believe in providing free programming forever. Our families never need to pay us anything for food, programming, or services, our team take care of that with the support of generous donors.

Invest In Our Youth.

Play-Based Programming With Art Integration

We firmly believe children learn best through play, that's why our entire program is built around play. We challenge the narrative of education through our activity-packed leadership skill-building camp!

What's the first step to developing a 21st-century leader? Get in touch with your emotions and gain emotional intelligence skills! Art being one of the most scientifically proven ways to grow emotional intelligence. Cooline provides campers opportunities to draw, paint, and explore any other form of the arts!

Make Camp Possible.

Cooline Camp Staff Are Like No Other!

Kids learn best from kids. It's been a long known education strategy. So at CoolineKids, we make sure that at least 90% of our staff and volunteers are high schoolers & college students. Our young students can look up to teenagers and see what is possible for them in high school and beyond. Our high school & college student staff undergo extensive training, have passed background checks and all have experience supporting children before they will meet your child. We ensure camps have 'adult allies', who support them, handle staff/student conflict and oversee camp.
