KinderCaminata

video On March 20, hundreds of kindergarten students descended on Fullerton College for the annual KinderCaminata, a festive mix of childish enthusiasm and college spirit that's been going on since 1994 when 2000 children attended the first event at Santa Ana College. Galal Kernahan proposed the concept to Los Amigos, an Orange County service club whose motto is, "You plead it, you lead it." And so he did, with great success.

Each year kids from local public schools are bused to college campuses where they are treated to events and entertainments designed to spark their interest in attending college when they grow up. The recent gala at Fullerton College was the first I'd ever seen or heard of KinderCaminata. I had a blast. The kids seemed to enjoy themselves too, both the little ones and the college kids.
