Our Mission

To provide a safe environment for at-risk youth to challenge themselves and their limiting beliefs through experiences and outdoor activities.

What We Do

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.
