Saving lives and

shaping brighter futures

A RETURN TO THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Camp Dallas at Sankoty Lakes provides under-served youth with life-saving experiences through fishing, camping, building, teamwork and outdoor adventure. In partnership with ELITE Youth Outreach and others, our camp immerses children in the wonders of the great outdoors while offering brighter futures shaped by nature and the endless awe of the wilderness.

A SAFE SPACE IN NATURE FOR underserved youth

We must teach our children to smell the earth, to taste the rain, to touch the wind, to see things grow, to hear the sun rise and night fall...to care.

— John Cleal

A VISION OF TOMORROW

We envision a camp for underserved youth to teach them survival, trades, skills and techniques, and to introduce them to the therapeutic experiences and enjoyment of being outdoors amidst the wonders of nature, fresh air, and the wilderness. Read more about Dallas and the founding story behind our drive to make a difference for underserved youth here.

A SAVING GRACE

A camp like this in a setting like Sankoty could save many of these children from the uncertainties and dangers of growing up in poverty, many of them in a culture they expect to be their one and only future. A place like Sankoty might as well be on another planet for many of them. We’d all love to show them another way.
