KUUMBA Summer Camp utilizes the KUUMBA Method of Learning through Creativity, Fun and Discovery. The real learning begins as we discover the gift that we each came to know, refine, and to share with the world.

1.   We believe that it is important for a child to discover what he/she came to bring to the world.

2.   We believe that what a child came to bring to the world will be divinely related to what he loves to do.

G

3.  We believe that the more exposure anyone has to Nature, the Arts and Creative Sciences by means of fun-filled hands on interactive-activities, out of doors play and field trips to places that spark the imagination; the happier and more inspired the child will be.

G

4.   We believe that inspiration activates potential and that a true education will reveal and hone the true potential in the child; and that the child will then be encouraged to bring his or her mighty gifts to the world.

Now in our seventh year of Summer Camps we are in enthusiastic preparation for daily fun-filled excursions to various locations, but also for adventures that will bring the world to our doorstep through the explorations of art, foods, music and stories of people who live in Los Angeles but have immigrated from around the world. This will be a camp to remember as our campers discover some of the ways that folks from Senegal, Ghana, Japan, Italy and of course… Mexico, do what they do.
