Summary

Many youth feel scared, broken or insignificant. Camp Amnicon helps marginalized youth to see the strength they possess within and the positive strength they have in community with each other.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Camp Amnicon works with youth from difficult neighborhoods and broken homes, struggling with drugs & alcohol, suicide, and abusive relationships. Many never experience support or a loving environment. Amnicon gives them an experience where people are kind, loving and supportive. Amnicon uses wilderness trips to challenge youth to overcome both emotional and physical obstacles and teaches them that they are capable, loveable, and worthwhile. Trips are funded by donations and churches.

How will this project solve this problem?

At-risk youth receive scholarships to Amnicon. The money comes from generous donors and churches. The money directly sponsors a youth's wilderness trip experience either by buying the food, supplies or paying for the professional guide on each trip.

Potential Long Term Impact

Amnicon is about helping kids feel safe. Amnicon's goal is to give kids the confidence to face the challenges in their world and to break the cycles of drugs, violence and abuse that they are used to.
