Kinder Joy of Moving Partners with Save the Children to Curb Summer Learning Loss for Kids in Underserved Communities.

The partnership between Kinder Joy of moving and Save the Children started in 2020 with a small pilot program in Morongo Valley, CA. What started in one state with just 150 kids, has grown to serve over 5,000 at-risk youth through 34 SummerBoost Camps in underserved communities in California, Tennessee and West Virginia. Starting in 2024, three fully equipped mobile units have been added to the program to reach communities without SummerBoost Camps, to distribute food, books, and Kinder Joy of Moving activity kits to families in need.  

Most children lose some educational progress over a typical summer, but low-income children are most impacted. By fifth grade, summer learning loss can leave low-income students up to three years behind their more affluent peers.  

The Kinder Joy of Moving program is based on a scientific method, that aims to help children be more active, enjoy moving, and develop life skills in an engaging and joyful way. It is fully incorporated into Save the Children’s SummerBoost Camps where children have the opportunity to study STEM, reading, and play educational and active games that promote cognitive learning and physical activity. In addition, Kinder Joy of Moving will be sponsoring community family days to engage parents and caregivers. 

Save the Children’s signature SummerBoostCamp™  is a national award-winning program, as recognized by the National Summer Learning Association.
