Kids of the Kingdom is a summer program for Chicago kids.
Kids of the Kingdom, better known as K.O.K., originated in 1978 at Emerald Avenue Church of God in Chicago, Illinois by Gladys Bennett. It is because of Gladys we continue to be a voice for children, providing leadership training, recreation, and socialization, which is ministry.
K.O.K. is a faith-based choice-based summer day camp focused on performing and literary arts. While at K.O.K. campers build ownership, social and emotional learning, agency, civic engagement, and growth – academically, behaviorally and socially.
With all of the obstacles that youth must overcome, exposure to an arts, faith, and service curriculum provides a lifeline which results in lasting improvements for the person and their community.
