Teen Reach Adventure camp™
The primary purpose of Teen Reach Adventure Camp (TRAC) is to improve and enhance the lives of at-risk youth age 13-17, now and in the future, by helping them to develop teamwork skills, trust, self-value and respect for others.
When a teenager goes to Teen Reach Adventure Camp
it changes the statistics of foster youth by offering an amazing adventure camp that is not just fun, but life altering. The T.R.A.C. model offers RFK graduates and other teens in foster care, a camp that is designed to focus on building trust, teamwork skills, work ethic and self-value.

WHY I VOLUNTEER
Volunteer since 2010
God has given me the life gift of wanting to help kids. My prayer is that God uses me to enlighten young people who may be lacking hope and/or direction in their life. Through love and understanding, volunteers can mentor struggling kids going through life's storms and hopefully assist them in realizing their true potential in this world.
When I look at young kids, I see the beauty and hope that God has put into their lives. Experiences during camps and mentoring clubs give me joy in capturing precious moments on camera that all of us are creating. Every kid needs positive experiences with great people around.
I can say without a doubt, I can't see myself not being a part of this wonderful organization the rest of my life. I was a little anxious the first year I volunteered. At the end of it I was crying, not because I didn't love my experience, rather it was an experience I wasn't expecting. these kids come from hard places, but the love they show you is amazing.
