Character Camp

Character Camp is a nationally acclaimed organization and the premier youth agency of southeast Texas. We provide the character education necessary for lifelong success. Along with academic tutoring, we offer youth events and innovative S.T.E.M. programs in Robotics and Aviation. Character Camp fills a very common unmet need with children. There are countless organizations who provide assistance with food, clothing and shelter. Character Camp addresses the core issues, such as emotional wellbeing and character, which is what children need most in order to break the cycle of poverty and crime. Character Camp fills that void by building real relationships with these children and mentoring them for years at a time, helping them with critical life skills and getting them on the road to productive citizenship. Our programs also teach environmental stewardship and animal kindness.

September 24 - October 17, 2017

I will be participating in my first 5K in the Run Houston race series - University of Houston event, to raise awareness and funds for Character Camp. I would like to sponsor 5 children at the current rate of $400 per child and/or help them build their own campsite. Character Camp provides initially a week-long camping experience that teaches, trains and demonstrates the type of character every kid needs and parents desire that helps transforms them for life. My son, now 18 very reluctantly  attended his first camp and ever since he can't wait to go each year. He has grown spiritually and had yearly reinforcement in the 7 Keys to transformed kids - see link, http://www.charactercamp.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Seven-Keys-To-Transformed-Kids.pdf.

Character Camp focuses on both the underserved child needing help in troubling situations and building leadership in those who have more stable environments. Both will receive the same focus on building the individual to be confident, caring and connected. Camps, along with extracurricular events like kickball tournaments provide safe, nurturing, educational environments that are great for parents or children who may be more reluctant in many other camping situations. They have had national exposure as well as local media and ultimately, they deserve their own campground to prevent having to rent sites yearly.

Any and all donations are appreciated!!! Thanks for supporting Character Camp!
