We want to see all young people and their relationships with their parents thrive.

Based on years of research and experience our camps are designed to help youth of all ages become more motivated, responsible and resilient. These life-changing immersive experiences for parents and their children deepen, redefine and evolve relationships and help to mark new stages in life.
