Meet Camp Embark

At Camp Embark, we believe every child deserves a SAFE opportunity to use their minds and creative energy to explore, create new friendships, and embark upon learning experiences that spark their curiosity and excitement. We make summer FUN!

Our Mission

To empower young people to change their lives and the world around them. Our mission aligns with our belief that an empowered child is confident in their purpose, passions, and abilities. Our program, for 5-12-year-olds, is designed to encourage imagination, innovation, and excitement. When young people exit our program, they carry with them a blueprint for explorative learning and the courage to create change.

Setting the Stage

We recognize the value and necessity of play as a foundation for learning. Camp Embark is SAFE ground for our youth to embark on a journey filled with awesome discovery about nature, science, leadership, and self-empowering life skills like financial literacy. Fun is the foundation on which all of our programs are developed. Experienced teachers and counselors instruct our children in the fundamentals of leadership, self-respect, cultural value, ownership, and relationship development all while having…FUN! 

Ingrained within our curriculum is an emphasis on cultural appreciation and celebration. We want our children to see reflections of themselves within our activities and within our camp counselors. This is necessary as we seek to gain the trust of every child and parent that enters our day camp. When children feel they belong and that their identity and voice matters, learning becomes FUN!

Professional Staff & Influencers

The value and strength of our curriculum are only as strong as the value of our staff. Our counselors and teachers are vetted using the highest standards in background checking. We maintain a staff of counselors and teachers who are respected in their communities and in the marketplace. Their engagement is a labor of love not of duty.

We invite community leaders and key influencers to share their journeys of success with our children. When children see successful individuals who look like them, their belief in their potential for success soars beyond all societal or self-limiting beliefs.

Strengthening Communities

Building strong communities requires the collaborative efforts of many, coming together for the common good of one—strengthening our youth. Children come to Camp Embark for fun and exploration. They leave Camp Embark with lasting memories.

Partners with Parents

Camp Embark is a nurturing environment for children ages 5 – 12. We partner with parents who understand the value of investing in their child’s development. We diligently strive to keep the lines of communication open with our parents to ensure the very best experience for their children. Together, we empower our little leaders to become the great leaders of tomorrow. We agree with the age-old adage:  It does take a village to raise a child.
