Summer with a Twist Camp

Our goal is to provide opportunities to young people from diverse cultural backgrounds, who have grown up in economically disadvantaged communities, with the necessary skills needed to achieve their potential.

We are committed to empowering our youth to acquire life skills, have respect for the environment, do outdoor activities, and develop social and spiritual aspects of their lives. You can rest assured that our summer camp is a week of fun and learning. Every program is filled with respect and love!
