Almost every child is at-risk because of a lack of programs that effectively prevent bullying, self-harm, drug and alcohol abuse, and suicide. For many years, the Champion for Success founder has dreamt of creating a special youth camp in her home state of Montana to address the issues faced by our youth.
Now, Camp Champion, a division of Champion for Success, Inc., a Montana 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, has purchased a location at the top of a pristine mountain in Montana overlooking some of the most iconic locations in the United States—Glacier National Park, three breathtaking mountain ranges and strategically located just one short mile from Flathead Lake.
Camp Champion is just beginning stages of fundraising and development but it has already developed strategic partnerships with leading programs that offer highly success rates that promote honorable behavior, self-accountability, positive self-worth, and beneficial community involvement.
Camp Champion will also offer its own proprietary preventative programs that engage youth and create positive behavior patterns.
