Our Company

Kids Adventures was founded by Greg and Cathey Carver and Brian Rindos in response to a group of families who were looking for a different type of program for their children. They wanted a program where their children were well supervised, active, and entertained. The result was Kids Adventures.

Greg, a father of 5 children, majored in Education at Louisiana State University. He has worked in Montgomery County Schools and directed high adventure and summer day camps for the past 14 years. He is currently a Boy Scout leader, volunteers with a teen organization for his church, and coaches youth basketball, baseball, & football.

Cathey, a working mother, majored in General Business at Louisiana State University. In addition to raising 5 wonderful children, she has been involved in teaching and organizing youth programs, youth conferences, summer camps and child care programs. She is actively involved in the PTA, and served as a Brownie Leader for the GSA.

Brian Rindos, a graduate of the University of Maryland, has directed summer and school-year programs in Montgomery County for the past 16 years. It is his belief that including children and families in the planning process will lead to a more enjoyable experience for everyone. Brian is a member of the Montgomery County Interagency Coordinating Board Committee for Excellence in Child Care as well as being an active member with a number of pediatric and adolescent health organizations.

Three of Greg and Cathey’s children have grow up through the Kids Adventures programs and have each worked in the program as older teens and adults. Through their positive experiences working in Kids Adventures, two have chosen to study education and become full time teachers.

The staff is the driving force behind what goes on at Kids Adventures. They are a diverse group of individuals brought together by their common goal to give your child an experience they’ll never forget. Kids Adventures staff is made up of school teachers, college graduates, college and high school students, as well as child care professionals with varying levels of education and training to ensure a proper fit with your child. Our staff strives to create a safe environment that promotes the growth of each camper/student as an individual.
