Get Ready!


What Is Get Ready! Camp?

  • FREE summer program for children from birth to age 5
  • Family awareness of how children learn through play
  • Open to everyone
  • No registration required

Central Kentucky Community Foundation brings together key stakeholders around a comprehensive and intentionally designed program to deliver quality learning experiences at a crucial time in children’s development. This collaboration among professionals, parents and community leaders is revolutionizing early childhood learning opportunities in our community.

Get Ready! Camp is designed with 3 outcomes in mind:

  1. Provide a unique learning opportunity for children
  2. Help parents discover how they can easily begin learning with their children
  3. Increase community awareness of the importance of early childhood learning

More than 650 children and 400 adults participated in Get Ready! Camp in 2017.

“This has been super entertaining and fun, and at the same time, educational, just as much for the adults as it is for the children. I hope that we can enjoy this program next year.”

Why Get Ready! Camp?

We must invest in exceptional early learning opportunities for every child if we are going to improve our educational outcomes as a state and country. But this isn’t just about measures and outcomes.

Parents deserve access to these opportunities to discover how to help their children learn;  children deserve this investment when it can most affect their future.

The future of our communities depends upon this investment. Our communities are making a difference by coming together and addressing specific issues locally. And thus, Get Ready! offers all parents who have these desires for their children the opportunities to join their children in discovering the exciting world of learning and of believing in themselves.
