Kidz Camp


“When Kids connect with hatred and violence it is very bad, but when kids connect with love and success, they will have a happy life.”
Dustin, age 11

Expanding the Healing Forest by
Tending Our Garden of Children.


Girls and Boys from 6-17 years of age whose parents are in The Healing Forest

Program Overview: Kidz Power Kamp is a 7-day residential multi-experiential learning camp with activities designed to access all our campers’ diverse learning styles. Instruction will be in more than fifteen areas including arts & crafts, drama, dance, basketball, volleyball, creative cooking, hiking, animal husbandry, ropes course, role-playing, gardening, and more. Campers will develop a positive sense of self-identity, self-expression, concern for others and connection to Source, among other skills. Camp is held in The North Georgia Mountains. Our facility is surrounded on all sides by national forest land and provides us with a pristinely beautiful area in which to learn and play together.

What to Bring: Campers’ clothing should be sturdy and practical. Weather in the North Georgia Mountains is unpredictable with a definite chance of rain and cold; therefore, campers should bring both rain and cold weather gear. Daytime temperatures range from 65°-75° during the summer. Shoes should be sturdy enough for mountain hiking. Sleeping bags and pillows are also necessary. Please see detailed list attached.

Opening Day & Parents Days: Opening Day (Sunday) is considered the day for parents to meet our staff and enjoy the facility while dropping off their camper at 6PM. Parents of younger children who are interested in staying at Forrest Hills Retreat Center during the week may do so by contacting 4 Forrest Hills Retreat Center directly. Parents Days begin on Saturday at 1PM and end at close of camp on Sunday. During this time, Parents will attend seminars detailing the activities that their child(ren) have participated in and will be joined with their child during activities designed to facilitate increased communication, cooperation and personal responsibility. We greatly appreciate the support of parents during this camp experience.

Health Certificate & Waivers: Included with this package are a health certificate that must be signed by a physician within 12 months of the camper’s arrival at camp. PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES INCURRED DURING CAMP. Also included are a number of waivers that are required by Four Winds Peace Center and our adjunct facilitators. Please sign and return these forms along with your registration materials. Campers will not be allowed to participate in activities without signed waivers.

Travel: Airline connections can be made to Atlanta Airport on opening and closing days. Transportation will be provided to and from Atlanta airport by the camp.

Food & Lodging: Campers are assigned to bunkhouse cabins according to gender and age. We request that all campers bring any linen that they may require for the week. We will try to accommodate roommate requests, but cannot guarantee placement in any particular bunkhouse. Meals and snacks at camp will be healthful, hearty, and abundant. We will accommodate any special dietary needs IF WE ARE MADE AWARE OF THEM WITH YOUR REGISTRATION FORM. Vegetarian and vegan meal requests are always honored.

Telephone: We ask that you not have your child telephone you during camp. Telephones will not be made available to the campers. In order to ensure the integrity of the camp experience we would appreciate parental input only when you arrive to join in the parental component of camp.

Fees: There is no reduction in fees for late arrivals or early withdrawals, including homesickness. Only in case of early withdrawal due to serious illness will a refund be considered. Campers should arrive no later than 6 pm on opening day and should depart no later than noon on closing day. A $100 reservation fee for each child is required with the application. Checks should be made out to Healing Forest Foundation. In case of cancellation $50 of the reservation fee will be refunded upon written notification prior to March 31st respectively. After that date, the entire reservation fee will be forfeited. The tuition for each session includes all living expenses, health services, supplies and materials, meals and daily snacks.

If you want something really bad, you need to focus on it. You will get it." Mitchell age 7

"What I learned at kids camp was...How to let go of your anger. Another thing I learned that things don't happen on accidents. They happen for a reason."
Bryanne age 11

"Kids Power Camp changed a lot for me. It changed the way I view life. All my fears were overcome and I learned how to talk to people in a patient calm way. I learned that everything is for a purpose and that I was made for a purpose. Life is worth living and we all deserve the best friends ever. I felt I could be myself for the first time ever."
Amanda age 13

"I know I am unique and I can make friends easily." Dustin age 12

"I was able to talk to my mom for the first time and speak my truth. It was the first time I made her cry just by talking to her and telling her how much I appreciated her."
Jared age 16

"Both my children (ages 6 & 7) attended KPC. It was a positive experience for them both. They were allowed to express inner feelings which showed us as parents areas to reinforce and redirect. I t was a gift for me tot sees the sensitivity come out in my children so I can react as a responsible parent to their personal inner issues."
Mrs. H. Steve Harrell, Atlanta, Ga.

"What did you do to my child (age 12)? He is more assertive and self assured than ever before! I can tell a big difference in his confidence."
Lynn White, Atlanta, Ga.

"My child (age 14) is not the same child. She always wanted me to do things for her and followed me around. She has more confidence and belief in herself than I ever imagined possible."
Marie Evans, Hiram, Ga .

"My 13 year old daughter said it was the first time in her life she felt comfortable being herself."
Janie Lasik, Atlanta, Ga.

"My 7 year old son got a report from the teacher that he is helping others and getting along with everyone. I have never gotten a report like that before. He has usually kept to himself at school. He is obviously more comfortable with who he is ever since he took the camp."
Dennis Lasik, Atlanta, Ga.

Thank you Burge for doing kids camp with me. You helped me in having courage, interacting with others, expressing my feelings, and listening to others. Although I only talked to you in person for only one week I feel like u helped me a lot in that one week end. Once again thank you for all you have done for me.
From your favorite kid, Jason, Miami
