Young Life Chicago-Northside's 2018 Camp Scholarship Program​​

Leaders and students from Chicago experience a week of camp together!

All kinds of kids that live or go to school on Chicago's North side will be joining us this summer for a week like no other.  But many of the kids we work with do not have the financial means to pay for a week of camp. While Young Life camps are very reasonably priced, they simply are out of reach for many kids.  The cost of a week at a Young Life camp averages just over $600 per person. Some may be able to pay a portion of their camp fee, but many will not. We'll ask kids to help raise funds, but most camp scholarship (or "campership") funds come from donors like you. This summer, Young Life Chicago-Northside has three trips for kids in our area:

YoungLives Camp at Timber Wolf Lake
On July 16-20, YoungLives teen moms will travel with their mentors to Timber Wolf Lake, a Young Life camp near Cadillac, Michigan.  During camp, young moms get a break from their everyday schedules – thanks to childcare volunteers who look after their children. Cost: $700 Click here to sponsor a YoungLives student.
High School Camp at Timber Wolf Lake
On July 9-14, teens from Amundsen, Lane Tech, Lake View, and other schools will head to Young Life's Timber Wolf Lake near Cadillac, MI. Teens will get to escape the heat and noise of the city for a week to play and process life with good friends and their Young Life leaders.  Cost: $600  Click here to sponsor a High School student.

WydLife Camp at Timber Wolf Lake
On August 3-8, our junior high students and leaders will head to Young Life's brand new camp, called Clearwater Cove. This camp is designed specifically for middle schoolers and their specific needs and personalities. Cost: $500  Click here to sponsor a WyldLife student.
How we distribute: 
Teens participate in Community Service projects to earn credit toward their account including: neighborhood cleanups, summer kids camps, church projects, and helping people move.  We get to be good neighbors and lend a helping hand while kids work hard to earn their way to summer camp...a win-win! 
We're grateful for your support...and we look forward to sharing some great stories with you after the summer!
