History

In 1978, Kanakuk Kamps started giving the last week of Kamp in the summer to serve the camping needs of urban youth. The I'm Third Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was birthed out of this need and eventually the demand for a camp dedicated to serving urban youth and adult leaders became so great that the first Kids Across America Kamp was built.

It was completed and opened in 1991, and in 1995, KAA 2 was opened adjacent to KAA 1. The number of young people and urban leaders served has grown every year. This demand led to the opening of a leadership training camp, called Higher Ground in 1998 and a fourth camp, KAA 3, in the summer of 2001. In September of 2000, the I'm Third Foundation was renamed Kids Across America (KAA). Each summer 20 campers receive a special "I'M THIRD" award.

As the numbers of young people and leaders served through the camps has grown, KAA has also grown in the scope of support services provided throughout the year.
