According to the Pepsi Refresh Project profile page, it reads:
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.
As a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. I am a supporter of this wonderful program. I encourage you to take this opportunity to quickly vote on something that will change the lives of many deserving students.
