Camp Greenheart is an initiative of Greenheart International, a global non-profit with headquarters in Chicago. Since 1985, Greenheart International has served the global community by connecting people and planet through cultural exchange, fair trade, and transformative experiences.
Camp Greenheart is an extension of these areas of expertise and also provides us with the opportunity to connect with youth in our community. We have demonstrated success in fostering leadership skills, teamwork, and creativity among camp participants.
Camp Greenheart’s mission is to:
- Engage youth to explore their natural surroundings
- Work creatively, collaboratively and independently
- Foster a holistic sense of well-being for self, others, and the world
- Challenge campers through increased responsibility and independence
- Celebrate youth and togetherness with music and nature
We strive to make camp fun, active, life-learning experience for all of our campers. The camp mission is achieved by providing challenging, fun activities such as swimming, climbing, boating, environmental education, sports, arts and crafts, archery, hiking, camping a much more.
