“I learned that courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.” 

-Nelson Mandela

September is a month of big changes for many children. Kids are going back to school, meeting new teachers, starting new sports teams or clubs, learning new homework routines and trying to stay awake as their bodies adjust to the new pace that is September.  Given all of these changes that our kids are facing, we at Kids in Service decided to spend time this month talking about bravery and courage.
Here is a list of 10 ways to help your children work on becoming more brave and courageous this fall.

Camp Empathy was born out of the 2019/2020 school year of service I did with my “real life” club in NH. That year our theme was EMPATHY and we focused our meeting time learning about EMPATHY and working on service projects related to that theme. It is organized as a 4 day week but you can easily spread the days out and do one a week for a month long program or schedule in the activities when they fit into your summer or school year.

Camp Kindness is a 4 Day “Camp” experience that you can do at home with your kids. You can do all 4 days in one week or split them up throughout the summer or school year. This program can work for all ages and for working families as well.  Click the Camp Kindness image below to learn more and get your FREE copy!!
