Its been a while since we've posted, so we thought we would give some updates on what The Station is doing right before the holidays. We have spent our fall season recovering from our busy summer camp season, cleaning up the camp property, and marketing to over 50 inner city and at risk youth organizations. Our heart is to reach the youth that can't get to camp themselves! The Station applies for several grants throughout the year so we can partner with other non-profit organizations, who work with inner city and at risk youth.
The impact on the lives of these youth is tremendous! Over the past 6 and half years we have worked with several organizations: Outdoor Outreach, Harbor House, Many Mansions and HerShe Foster Girls are just few. When we watch a camper snowboard or ski for the first time, at first we see the fear in their eyes as they step outside their comfort zone. But as the first day goes on, something clicks...and slowly the fear turns to a huge sense of accomplishment! And then the smile appears! Campers from the inner city that experience activities like this have such a new appreciation for the great outdoors. And they gain more self confidence.
The Station staff speak life into our campers. These youth need to believe that there is always hope. And that there is a way out of the tough circumstances where they may live. We take what they accomplish in the great outdoors and correlate it to how they can accomplish great things in their lives! At The Station we always want the camp experience to be positive, and we work really hard, hire the most incredible staff, and create so much fun so that each camper feels welcomed and loved!
This holiday season, we are asking for partners. Organizations that will partner with us to bring their youth to The Station. And also partners that will pour financially into The Station inner city/at risk youth scholarship fund. Please partner with us to give an awesome youth an incredible camp experience!! Help The Station reach out!
