KAMO is a unique mentoring organization that provides FREE to children year round activities. Kids get the opportunity to team with mentors over a period of several years so that their appreciation for nature can be more fully developed. KAMOKIDS can learn life-long outdoor skills and become future stewards of our resources. Parents are always welcome to participate in KAMO activities.
Our mission is to provide outdoor experiences to children including fishing, canoeing, camping, hunting, wildlife viewing and hiking. Mentors who have passed a background check are matched with children to help provide them with these outdoor experiences. Our goal is to give a basic introduction to the sheer joy of the outdoors to children who may otherwise not have an opportunity to do so. While there is a membership fee to Mentors, there is NO CHARGE to any child to participate in KAMO.
