Camp Opportunity strives to provide a safe, healthy environment where their staff and campers can grow and connect. They seek to achieve their goal by matching each camper one-on-one with a counselor for the week, providing them with continuity and mentorship that can continue throughout the year and each summer; facilitating a wide-range of activities, including the Discovery curriculum, which have a focus on coping skills and promoting the positive attitude “I can.”; creating opportunities whereby each camper can experience success; helping their campers develop skills to face their own circumstances and to make safe life choices outside of camp; and providing campers with the experience of developing positive relationships with adults that can be transferred to their community, school, and home.
Mission Statement: The mission of Camp Opportunity is to improve the health, safety, and well-being of their campers and staff, by providing them with opportunities to build healthy relationships and increase their self-esteem in a safe, stress-free environment.
