Cultivating Leaders to Impact Our Community

Bright Lights campers will venture out into the community to learn how small people can still make a big difference in the local community in our "Caring Leaders" camp. Throughout the week, campers will also learn how to take a great, kind idea, and turn it into an action plan. Kids will see how impactful community service results from great ideas, clear communication, careful planning and a little sweat and hard work.

Beginning June 26th, Lee's Summit area students can meet new travelling companions and journey the world in Bright Lights Institute's "Amazing Race" summer camp. Taking its direction from the popular CBS television show, this week-long adventure allows students to build teams for competing in geographically-themed challenges from countries all around the world, without ever leaving the KC metro area. After four days of globe trekking, students will end the week testing their new-found skills and matching wits with other campers in a scavenger hunt at Kansas City's own Nelson Atkins Museum.
