How often do we stop to tell the kids and teens in our lives how incredible they are?

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day® is a national holiday celebrated every third Thursday in March. Every year, millions of people—like you—write/tell a young person in their life what makes them incredible. We founded this holiday in 1997 to lift up young people nationwide.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for the next #KidDay #AIKD: March 18, 2021.

Pledge your voicecommit to encouraging a special kid in your life on March 18, 2021. Your words are powerful. Make an impact.

Here's how you can make a difference this AIKD:


To celebrate AIKD virtually this year, we encourage you to record a short video telling a young person in your life why they are incredible. Let a kid or teen know that they are brilliant, loved, hard-working, creative, caring, special, passionate, funny, open-minded, unique...

Email your video to us at and you will be entered into a raffle to win a $200 Camp Fire bucks gift certificate, redeemable for any of our camps or programs!

Deadline to submit your video and be entered into the raffle is Friday, March 19th. The winner will be announced that day at 5pm.

Imagine a world where every single kid is encouraged to find their passion and is supported by caring adult champions. This is the world we're creating in our out-of-school-time programs. But we need your help to make sure every kid in our community has equal access to these valuable growth experiences. With your generous donation, we can increase scholarships, provide extra supports for a diverse group of youth, and ensure an inclusive environment for all.

What can your gift do to change lives?
