Over the course of a weekend, we create and execute a game. During this game, 50 boys & girls, per weekend, randomly choose a mock social/financial status, which determines the lodging amenities they start the game from. Then they experience true to life’s ups & downs obstacles designed to challenge them and increase/decrease their mock finances. Their final income status determines the lodging they end with. Youth also explore the Camp CHOICE “Life Lessons©” curriculum including Life Inquiry/Race, Culture & Family/Education, Careers & Financial Stability/External & Internal Evolvement.
During the camp, youth are served healthy meals with cooking demos, and recipes, so each child is able to recreate what they ate during the weekend.
We also offer fun physical fitness instruction teaching on healthy lifestyles, and get their bodies moving. Some of the activities offer an element of teamwork with other youth in a fun atmosphere. We make sure we are feeding their bodies as well as their minds.
