KinderCamp will be coming soon to a Knox County Public School near you. The new camp was approved at the July KCPS Board of Education meeting and will be held at each elementary school in the district. Although exact dates have not been confirmed for all schools, the program will occur in the upcoming weeks before August 11, the district’s official start date. All incoming KCPS kindergarten students are encouraged to enroll in this camp.


KinderCamp focuses on school readiness, especially among the 30 percent of students in Knox County who have never been to preschool or kindergarten. This includes easing the overall transition to kindergarten for students. It will also add an emphasis on learning basic knowledge and skills.
