Challenges

New Camp Facility
Due to the year-round school schedule of the Chicago Public Schools the Chicago Alive Youth Camp is limited to having its summer camp in the month of July. Presently we rent a canp for 125 urban kids plus staff of 50 in July. Sadly we are turning kids away.

Ideally we would like to have weekly camps for more than 50 youth each, with one age specific group at a time (9-11; 12-14; 15-17) instead of three camps simultaneously. Having one age group at a time produces a higher quality and a more personal camping experience. A new camp facility would also allow us to expand to have residential camp sessions throughout the year that coincide with the Chicago Public Schools.

The camp facility would also become a new site for Beckon mentoring retreats.
