Our Mision and Vision

Providing Refuge and Respite.


Our mission and passion has always been to provide a refuge and respite for our Chicago at-risk kids and give them the opportunity to experience nature, camp and some inner peace. Whether faced with the physical effects of poverty or the danger of gangs, violence, drug abuse and hopelessness, we want to provide children a place to experience a true outdoor adventure. We believe we can build foundations that lead to hope, motivation and a better future through mentorships, motivational speakers, counseling, opportunities for internships, continuing education and ultimately, finding meaningful work.
