What we believe:

We believe that too many young people, especially those between the ages of 8 to 18 who are economically disadvantaged, fall between the cracks in Chicago's educational system. These students can benefit enormously from the same types of educational, cultural, and community-building opportunities that are more readily afforded to young people from more privileged situations.

We also believe in the power of consistency and continuity. We therefore offer a summer camp and regularly scheduled school-year activities. This combination allows us to provide a sustained synthesis of academic, cultural, environmental, civic, and recreational experiences. In short, our year-round operation helps to nurture well-rounded, complete individuals, capable of dealing with the curves life is sure to throw their way.
