We would like to thank everyone that made our 2021 Boots and Bling Auction a success! We appreciate the support for Camp Kamassa



Join Us

Our mission is to build and maintain the first and only year-round, fully handicap accessible camp facility in Mississippi to be used by children and adults with serious illnesses, physical and mental challenges, and other special needs. 

Building a camp facility for children and adults with special needs.

Throughout the year we have events around the state: Car show, Boots and Bling, Bunco Tournament, Bingo Tournament, Golf Tournament, Tip the Hat Campaign, Book Sales. We’d love for you to participate in one of our events. 



Mississippi's Toughest Kids Foundation is creating a place for children to explore new things, thrill over exciting adventures, and discover the great big wonderful outdoors. It will be a very special camp facility designed exclusively for children and adults who want to have fun but who are often limited because of serious illnesses, physical and mental challenges, and other special needs they face every day.

Our Mission

After ten years the vision for Mississippi's Toughest Kids Foundation is becoming a reality.  Members of the Air Force, National Guard, Marines and Navy from all across the country are gaining essential skills while helping to build Camp Kamassa, a special needs camp for Mississippi children and adults just outside of Crystal Springs. Their role in the camp's construction is part of the military's Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) which teams reservists with needed infrastructure projects in communities nationwide.
