Upper Room Summer Academic Camp


The Upper Room is a neighborhood-based non-profit organization providing high-quality out-of-school education programs to low-income families in the urban area of Kansas City.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide high quality, educational out-of-school programs while actively engaging and challenging a diverse population to enjoy learning from cradle to college.

Our mission is “Education for Life.” The after school and summer programs provide education to the children of Kansas City and prepare them for a greater future. These opportunities fight poverty and try to escalate the standard of living for all those in the urban core at no cost to the families. We have almost 400 employees and serve over 3,000 students each year.

Our program is open to all students, regardless of family income.
