The purpose of Cameron Boys Camp is to provide troubled boys in North Carolina, between the ages of 10-15 years old an opportunity to work out big problems and find a new direction for their lives.
Life goals are set using an outdoor setting, the fun and adventure of camping, and a team consisting of the boy, his family, camp staff, and peer groups.
Cameron Boys Camp helps boys grow emotionally, socially, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
The family also grows as they participate in goal setting, counseling, family conferences, and home visits.
All working together, a boy reunites with his family better able to succeed in his community.
