To provide a safe environment for at-risk youth to challenge themselves and their limiting beliefs through experiences and outdoor activities.
The Higher Ground six-day camp is held in the mountains outside of Estes Park, Colorado, where the teens get to leave behind their perceived limitations, labels, and their overwhelming circumstances, and get a chance to see their lives through new eyes. They will return home with a greater sense of self and accomplishment to better prepare them for the emotional challenges they face at home and in their daily lives.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ?
“There is a connection and a real personal joy for me to see the improvement a child makes when they know that there is someone out there that they can talk to, and rely on to be there, when times get tough. This is my motivation to make sure that if I can help one kid make better decisions in his life, he can make better choices and have a much brighter future, for the rest of his life.“
