Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Since we began the "war on poverty" our poverty rate has largely gone unchanged. In fact the numbers of families at or under the poverty live has increased. We want to make a difference by investing time, energy, and partnering with those who are working with these children. We want to bolster the good things already going well in under served communities. We firmly believe that when we change their environment God gets a chance to change their hearts. We love them unconditionally and teach them basic financial principles as well as leadership principles. Our hearts are that they go back and make a difference in their community. For us it is not just a week of camp but we continue to invest in the partner who brought the camper and the camper.

Summer Camp

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to raise up leaders in these under served communities!
We believe that if we pour into children ages 7-12, and grow them as leaders it gives the other children something different to look at and aspire to. How will a young lady know how to pick a quality husband one day if she never sees quality men? How will a Godly young man find a quality wife if he never (or rarely) sees one?

We believe that by using week long, overnight camps we get the kids out of their environment which opens them up to see something different. Usually around the end or day 2 and especially on day 3 we see the walls come down and they begin to open up. Allowing themselves to be filled with hope and belief in themselves.
Also, we intentionally put High Quality young people in front of the kids so they can see and begin to identify with them.

We hosted 20 children at our first camp in 2018. We are anticipating 100 campers this year.
We hire college age counselors and high school (counselors in training) to work with the kids in a 1 counselor for every 3 campers ratio. In addition we have Mission Teams who volunteer to help during our week of camp.

We hosted 20 campers last year for our first camp.
We are planning for 100 campers in 2019, which means we will have approx. 150 people total for the week.

In one year it appears we will have a 5X increase.
