ride a horse, or find hope.




Make  a difference in the life of a child living with a health challenge.



Kindle began in 1998 as a one week summer camp for children impacted by HIV/AIDS.  Today the organization improves the quality of life of thousands for children, young adults, and families facing medical complications through recreational experiences, educational services, and support programs.



Kindle has acquired a camp facility for Kindle Ranch!  The facility is on 72 acres an hour North of Los Angeles, CA.  More information coming soon!

We are still accepting applications for campers this summer for both our resident camp programs and our day camp!  For more information, contact
