Program description
Camp Greenheart welcomes Chicago youth, ages 12-16, to have a true camp experience filled with team building, confidence boosting, and creativity-inspiring activities—free of any financial burden. This experience is further enriched with environmental, social, and cultural awareness education that empowers campers to become global leaders in their communities. Campers return with a deeper appreciation for their natural surroundings and concern for the wellbeing of their self, others, and the world.

Camp Greenheart Highlights
This year, Greenheart is joining forces with Chicago Voyagers, a non-profit with a mission of empowering at-risk youth through outdoor experiential adventures that foster healthy relationships and responsible behavior. Our campers spend four days in the outdoors engaging in the following enriching activities:

  • Canoeing
  • Hiking
  • Sleeping in tents
  • Cooking outdoors
  • Campfire building and S’mores
  • Leadership and teambuilding activities
  • Workshops on sustainability, cultural awareness, and community engagement
