Still Fulfilling Our Mission Through the Pandemic
What Sets Us Apart From Other Camps?
Moms Lead the Way
Founded and operated by dedicated African American homeschool moms, KCC has a hands-on approach to education that sets us apart from the rest.
We See the Bigger Picture
At KCC, we believe that a broadened sense of awareness and recognition of the cultures around us is something that shouldn’t come at a premium or prohibitive cost.
Parents Trust the Journey
For over a decade, KCC has provided culturally enhancing educational experiences to more than 1,000 children in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and around the world.
Meet The Founder
Hey Culture Conscious Parents!
I’m Jania Otey, a meticulous master of cultural programming, leadership guru, home-schooling mama of 15 years, vegan foodie, and the founder of Kids & Culture Camp.
The lack of cultural-educational offerings for children is problematic and Kids & Culture became the answer. My purpose is to help you cultivate the path for your child’s success with intentionality and a radical shift in what your child learns. Relying on textbooks that exclude contributions of people from all over the world is a thing of the past.
I believe that inspiring children to use their education to celebrate cultural diversity and build character alleviates prejudices. When children love learning, becoming independent global thinkers is a natural progression of their growth.

We believe that inspiring children to celebrate diversity helps to alleviate societal prejudices. When children understand and appreciate each other, they make this world better. We’re on a mission to cultivate that appreciation for and in every child.

What Parents Are Saying:
“This is a fabulous program with engaged teachers and wonderful children. The entire experience is well organized, beginning with registration until the end of camp.”
“I don’t know of any other camp like it! My kids explore and learn about new places and cultures and have lots of fun at the same time. They can’t wait for camp to start and are sad when it’s over! It is one of the highlights of their summer every year.”
“It is a dynamic learning environment that is nurturing, educational, and engaging in a spirit of excellence.”
