Two primary drivers facilitate positive transformation in the youth we serve: the Experience and the Relationships.
For us it's all about the experience. We feel that providing kids the opportunity to interact with the great outdoors will leave lasting memories. Great experiences are often the sum of learning new subjects taught beyond a typical classroom. We also feel that using the wonder of mother nature via camping retreats always lead to memorable experiences.
Up and Up is strongly backed by the belief that great relationships are built on trust, like-ability and learned interpersonal skills. Our goal is simple, lay down the foundation for our participants to build lasting relationships with our mentors and other camp members.
THE POWER OF CAMP
Creating a safe camp environment is of the utmost importance. Only when campers are truly comfortable — only when they feel safe — will they be willing to step outside their comfort zones and try things that are scary or difficult, like making new friends.
