  • What Should the Voters Know?: In 2021 KyMel was again forced to cancel all in-person camps and once again pivot to an all-virtual experience called Kamp KyMel. Kamp KyMel was a summer-long series of unique events designed for campers to participate safely at home or in the hospital. Each event came with a custom kit that included all of the needed supplies to participate. Highlights this year included LEGO camp with a LEGO master, Space camp with a NASA ambassador, Football camp with NFL star Dalton Risner, Animal camp with a local zoo keeper, and Soccer camp with the coaches from SportingKC. In addition the campers could participate in Baking camp, Craft camp and Prank camp. It all culminated in the grand finale Talent Show and Party, the video included in this submission. Campers were given the opportunity to come to a local film studio to have their talent's filmed, or they could submit home videos. The campers (and their families) then gathered to watch the talent show and participate in interactive games. It was a true connecting experience for these kids facing cancer.
    **Please note, the actual event starts at minute 30 of the posted video. The time prior to that is a slideshow of the other events during the summer.
