Actress Keshia Knight-Pulliam is the founder of Kamp Kizzy in Atlanta Georgia. Kamp Kizzy is a week- long camp with an educational curriculum for girls between the ages of 11-16 years old. The camp is designed to create self-esteem, motivation and empowerment for the young ladies who attend this free camp.
Pulliam wanted to take a hands-on approach to helping young women. Kamp Kizzy serves as a safe place for young ladies to have a place to develop and grow and their mental ideas and questions. The camp works to take a wholistic approach to the mental, emotional and physical well-being of each young woman at the camp. The camp takes on about 100 students every year and provided them with the space to grow, dream and think big!
Sources state that at Kamp Kizzy the young ladies also participate in yoga, sexual health and hygiene workshops, body image workshops, team building exercises, creative writing, social media etiquette, etc.
The camp provides guest speakers for the young women who share their s life experiences with them. Kamp Kizzy serves as a sort of manual or guidance into womanhood. For more information about KeshiaKnight Pulliam’s Kamp Kizzy Organization, log onto www.kampkizzy.org.
