Illumination Learning Studio’s Send a Kid to Camp Program Returns

June 29, 2022

Thanks to generous sponsorships from Verity Credit Union and Kathy Casey Food Studios® – Liquid Kitchen®, Illumination Learning Studio’s Send a Kid to Camp program has returned for a second year.  

After the program launched last summer, ILS co-owner Molli Piper aimed to expand it to benefit more local students. “Send a Kid to Camp was well-received last year,” she explains. “Our business community has a humbling way of banding together to help when asked; we’re grateful to Verity Credit Union and Chef Kathy Casey for their contribution to our neighborhood kids.”  

One parent recipient of last year’s Send a Kid to Camp program said, “[Our son] loved every minute of it. It’s a great summer day camp program.” 

“Every child should have an opportunity to attend summer camps that let them engage in the arts,” Molli emphasized. “Our themed camp weeks help them express themselves through art, dance and performance, while connecting them with new and old friends.”

Summer camps promote social skills and independence, while teaching children teamwork; and at Illumination Learning Studio, campers have the added benefit of engaging in the arts – whether performing or visual arts.  

“I was so happy to be a sponsor this summer as going to camp was one of my favorite things when I was little,” said Chef Kathy Casey of Liquid Kitchen. “The creative and fun outdoor aspects of camp help build lasting skills and memories for children, as well as important personal interaction with other kids. My motto is always to cook up some fun!” 

ILS will run weekly themed Summer Adventure Camps at their Ballard and Greenwood studios from June 20 through September 2. Learn more at   


Illumination Learning Studio is an independent family business focused on engaging and enlightening young minds through early education learning, performing and fine arts after-school programs, and school year and summer camps.
