Camp Opportunity Inc

To improve the health, safety and well-being of our campers and staff, by providing opportunities to build healthy relationships and increase self-esteem in a safe, stress-free environment. Tax ID 77-0219669


We are a unique summer camp experience for children who have experienced abuse or neglect (or are at risk) in Santa Cruz County, California. Our camp program is based on the concept that it only takes one healthy stable relationship to make a difference in the life of a child. With a camper-counselor ratio of 1:1, we aim to make a difference. This matching provides mentorship that can continue each summer and throughout the year. Using a trauma-informed framework, our camper-counselor pairs participate in a wide-variety of health and wellness activities, including physical exercise, creative expression, personal enrichment, and free time to socialize and build friendships. These activities are designed to promote an attitude of “I can”, provide opportunities where everyone can be successful, and develop skills to face personal circumstances out of camp.
