City Kids Camp

Issue Area: Arts, Culture, Humanities , Education , International , Public Benefit
Non-profit Status: 501(c)3
Mission:
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.
Specific Needs:
We bring underprivileged kids from the big City, Chicago, and considering all of the violence we have been experiencing we want to take the kids to see nature, experience camp experience and get some inner peace. Next year we are anticipating taking 300-400 kids to camp. We do not charge anything and look for sponsors to help with funding. We need bunk beds, portable showers, porta potties, outdoor playground sets, swings, grills, kitchen equipment, tree obstacle course, commercial lawnmower to cut 10 acres of grass...etc.
