Camp Updates

Flying Angels


On Saturday, June 11th, 2016, our Weiser camp got to experience an important day combining “Courage” with “Commitment”. The team went to ZIP Idaho to challenge the mountain and its zip-line. Here’s an example of what the kids enjoyed that day:

Cheers to our teens who made it all the way through to earn their survival back packs early. Cheers to our teens who are continuing to work hard to receive them.

Here’s how you can continue to help our teens who work so hard to create an amazing path to their future.

Building Midvale Ropes Course

Steve Fenske, our program director has been working hard on our ropes course in Midvale, ID. Our teens will be working on survival skills and volunteering their time to help finish building their own ropes course April 17 and 18, 2015.

We had an audience during the development.


Did some major clearing around the campsite and created a fire pit and instructional area for our teens.

I want to express my thanks to Adam Clinton, one of my Reserve Police Officer and David Ott and his Grandfather for the use of the tractor and auger which dug the holes and helped to clear debris from the campsite.


This is just the beginning of the course.

On the Grand scheme of things….

Rock climbing small

Last month (February) our young teens all took their turns at conquering this rock wall. With the support of their peers this day turned out to be a huge success. Fear of heights was not an issue knowing teammates below were literally supporting them.
