To provide a refuge and respite for our Chicago kids and give them the opportunity to experience nature, camp and some inner peace.

Whether faced with the physical effects of poverty or the dangers of gangs, violence, abuse and hopelessness, we want to provide children a place to experience nature and a true outdoor adventure.  We believe we can build foundations that lead to hope, motivation and a better future through mentorships, motivational speakers, opportunities for internships, continued education and ultimately, finding meaningful work.
