About this program

Martin's Mission Overview:

YWCA Carlisle host’s an annual Martin’s Mission (formerly King’s Kamp) elementary day camp on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Martin’s Mission seeks to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s testimony to racial and social change. Martin’s Mission is at no-cost to participants, and runs from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Our program involves students in fun, interactive activities and discussions focused on the principles of Martin Luther King, Jr.: equality, justice, peace, and love.


Our program is designed for elementary-aged students from Kindergarten through 5th grade in Cumberland County. This one-day, free camp fills up quickly, so be sure to register your child early!
