Information for Parents & Guardians

Youth Haven is excited to offer free weekend camps and summer camp for kids who have experienced some type of hardship in their lives. Examples include children in foster care, single-parent homes, or low-income homes. Sponsors provide scholarships so all of these children can attend free of charge.

Our campus is a safe and fun place for these kids. College-age team leaders invest their time, energy, and love into them, serving as positive role models and becoming like big brothers and sisters. Our team approach teaches teamwork and helps develop social skills, while a variety of activities encourage creativity, physical exercise, and self esteem. As a non-denominational Christian outreach, we also teach morals and values that will help the children positively impact their own schools, communities, and the world!

We have weekend camps for ages 7-13 during the school year, and 5-day camps for ages 8-13 in the summer.
