Camp Miracles

Camp Miracles

The summer program allows at-risk youth who participate in Saturday Academy (a program of HOPE worldwide developed to provide a safe environment on Saturday mornings for children in North Philadelphia) as well as those from Radnor, PA to interact with and be mentored by high school and college students. Over the years, we have witnessed countless friendships blossom between privileged and underprivileged youth as they develop skills together necessary for thriving adulthood.

Program participants, ages 8 to 18, are assigned to a student who works directly alongside them as a mentor throughout activities and lessons. Over time, we have watched our campers grow to become mentors, attend college, attain employment, and emerge as leaders in their own communities. We build community and provide a safe place.
