Mentoring Camp for Young Men
Fri, Jun 16, 2017, 7:00 AM – Sun, Jun 18, 2017, 2:30 PM EDT
Let's Make It Happen Together, Inc. (LMIHT) will kick-off 2nd annual Mentoring Camp for Young Men from June 16-18, 2017. The design and intent of the camp is to provide 200 young men of Cumberland County an opportunity to enhance their social skills, increase their exposure to the natural environment, learn about proper nutrition and wellness and discover life skills through the mentorship of outstanding men in the community. The mentoring camp will have an open registration for young men ranging from 10 to 18 years of age. LMIHT feels this is a critical age to obtain the attention of males to guide them towards being productive individuals and citizens. It is important to provide them with role models and mentors on how they can navigate through daily life. The mentoring camp will provide a platform for the participants to ask questions and share their thoughts.
The camp will be held at Camp Rockfish located in Parkton, NC. Camp Rockfish is equipped to provide housing, organized activities and trained counselors for the participants. The campers will stay in cabins for two nights. During each day, there will be planned activities that will teach the campers life and survivor skills, problem solving, conflict resolution and social interactions centered on outdoor and physical activity. The campers will be divided into small groups as appropriate to maximize learning and sharing. The trained counselors at Rockfish Camp will lead many of the discussions and also train volunteers prior to the camp being held. LMIHT will provide volunteers and motivational/key note speakers daily. The motivational/key note speakers will provide their personal experiences to include challenges and successes. The objective is to encourage the young men to think, act and do.
