Kappa Kamp is conceived as a summer enrichment camp providing students, ages 12-16, with the opportunity to acquire productive life-skills through intensive workshops and learning through structured play activities. Students may choose from a number of enrichment camps and classes, as well as attend a variety of cultural and recreational activities, field trips, and educational lectures. Work, fun, and more, all take place within a safe, professionally designed and supervised setting.
From June 4-16, 2017 Kappa Kamp will be held on the campus of Paul Quinn College in Dallas, Texas. Paul Quinn College holds the distinction of being the oldest historically black college west of the Mississippi River. The college was founded in 1872 in Austin, Texas by a small group of African Methodist Episcopal preachers at Metropolitan A.M.E. Church and later moved to Dallas, TX. Originally, the college was called the Connectional High School and Institute. The school’s original purpose was to educate freed slaves and their children.
