Summer Camp: An organic experience that creates lifelong memories and friendships, strengthens values and builds community.

Leadership, ethics and philanthropy camps are currently held in three locations during the summer. Each camp is a six day, five night full emersion program. Students are exposed to an extraordinary range of speeches and panels, where they experience personal accounts from leaders and entrepreneurs from the non-profit, philanthropic and socially responsible business community. We combine the magical experience of summer camp with the endless opportunities to give back.

Ken Berger of Charity Navigator greets campers

  • “ Grab the Torch Camp changed my outlook on life. It made me more adventurous in striving for opportunities that just seemed right. Camp provided the fuel for the fire of passion. I know the possibility of completing a task and goal is greater than ever before.”

  • “ Wow, that’s all I can say. Wow, how can one week be so incredibly insightful and be equivalent to some of the most important things I’ve learned throughout my entire life? I can feel the experience in every buzzing cell in my body.”

A parent

“Plain and simple. My son came home a different boy. We’re forever grateful”
