Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day Letter Writing!

Celebrating its 19th anniversary, Camp Fire’s Absolutely Incredible Kid Day® honors our nation’s youth by asking adults to write letters of encouragement and inspiration to the incredible kids in their lives. It is a simple, meaningful way to let youth know how much they are appreciated.

Join Camp Fire Northwest Ohio as we celebrate the amazing kids who impact our community and our lives. Youth from around the nation will be celebrating along with you as we recognize absolutely incredible kids locally, at Camp Fire council events, and on social media channels like Facebook and Twitter.

AIKD is a day designated to honor our nation’s youth. Adults and teens are asked to write, post, tweet, and tag (#AIKD) notes of encouragement and inspiration. It is a simple, meaningful way to let youth know how much they are appreciated. Lives are changed by this simple act of love and kindness.


The 2015 AIKD Event is on March 19 at Rolling Thunder Skating & Family Fun Center 5:00-7:00 PM - Stop by after work by yourself, bring co-workers or bring the kids (they skate free while you write letters)!
