Each summer, we host two camps for up to 200 IL youth 14-20 years of age. Activities of the camp will build self-confidence, team work, positive peer and adult connections and independent living skills among youth. Youth will participate in activities including team-building, recreational, and skill-building activities.

Camp LIFE 2019

The theme for our events last year was, "Back to the Basics."  Our IL youth learned basic skills to help propel them towards an even brighter future!  Camp Life I 2019 for youth 17-21 years of age, was held on the campus of Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) in Montgomery, AL.   Camp Life II for youth 14-16 took place at Children's Harbor in Alexander City, AL.  Fun was had by all, and they learned some wonderful things too!  This year's theme is, "Inside Out," we're bringing a holistic approach to planning for success in 2020. 

This year, we will host Camp Life I at Alabama State in Montgomery, AL, and were hosting Camp Life II in the beautiful surroundings of Children's Harbor once again!  Applications for Camp Staff are currently being accepted, please click here for more information if interested: Camp Staff

Camp Counselors

Our camp wouldn't be possible without our amazing staff! The qualities we look for include boundless enthusiasm, putting others before self, sensitivity to camper needs, willingness to work, dedication and loyalty. Prior experience in a camp setting is not a requirement for working as part of our team, however, it is a bonus! Working with children in professional settings, teaching experience, and certifications are also assets to your application. Thorough background checks are completed on all applicants in compliance with State requirements.
