Help Us Build The Leaders Of The Future
Since its inception in 1986, Character Camp has remained true to its mission of providing youth intervention services, primarily to inner city public school students in the Greater Houston and Southeast regions of Texas.
We are a 501(c) (3) organization, registered in the state of Texas. It has been a great privilege to partner with local schools, youth agencies and corporations to make a lasting and far-reaching impact on families, educational institutions, communities and employers. Our innovative youth camps, mentoring programs, on-campus projects and community events create win-win scenarios for everyone involved.
Young people enjoy safer, more productive pastimes. Communities enjoy lower crime rates. Educational institutions enjoy improved behavior which creates a more conducive learning environment. Employers enjoy the benefits associated with hiring honest employees with superior work ethics.
We constantly strive to change communities by offering character enrichment programs, hosting project graduations, mentoring youth, hosting summer and winter youth camps, academic tutoring and character education. Many members of our organization have been labeled as “at-risk” and face challenging oppositions including lack of guidance and poverty. With Character Camp, youths are often afforded a second chance at becoming creative, forward-thinking members of society.
