CAMP CHOICE MISSION
To provide youth life enrichment experiences that benefit their present and future spiritual, physical, educational, and social well being.
“YOUTH CHOOSING WELL”
Camp CHOICE teaches:
“LIFE LESSONS” that build understanding of the human race, our physical world & how individuals find their way through life; guided by God’s gift of choice.
The Fun Park
Our goals are to:
- Attract Investors
- Secure 20-40 acres of land for commercial, agricultural and residential purposes (ideally within Kansas City limits)
- Build contractual relationships to provide "Game of Life" Adventures and Youth Life Coaching services
We need to raise $5-20 million to build our youth development & family fun park. We are seeking at least $5.6 mil in startup funds, which will carry the project through its four yr. development timeline. Once the park is built, the summer adventure will serve 400 youth annually, and provide weeklong “Game of Life” Adventures between the months of June and August. Before and after the summer experience, Camp CHOICE will operate daily providing unique lodging amenities, event space, youth development/parenting seminars and other recreational activities.
Camp CHOICE seeks to be the, “go to” place for youth and families of all ages and diversities to be entertained, and lives enriched! While development plans for the fun park are underway, Camp CHOICE offers “Game of Life” Weekend Adventures, and other experiences, to schools, churches, and other youth serving entities. Campers and their families report great satisfaction from their camp experiences, including euphoria, enhanced self-identity, hope, communication skills, a boost in financial literacy, and so many more positive outcomes.
