Kappa Kamp, a partnership between The Piney Woods School and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, teaches students to envision their educational opportunities as stepping stones to positive influence in their decision-making for personal growth and community collaboration. During the two weeks, students are engaged in classroom learning, a variety of simulated laboratories employing the use of technology, field trips, and physical activities to emphasize that a well-rounded student has a better chance of becoming a more sophisticated adult who can then be a productive leader in their respective communities.
Convening students from all over the US to Piney Woods School provides a measurable opportunity to create a “ripple-effect” of excitement about education and leadership development. Aligning Kappa Kamp with local alumni chapter mentors through national Guide Right programming further ensures that the benefits of the summer program are sustained.
