Dream Camps are a 3-day outbound camp where all teams come together to run for all the children we work with. The camps have three key goals:
- Help build hope and motivation by connecting children with their dreams through a process called the arc of transformation.
- Help build experiential self confidence through exposure to new experiences that challenge their comfort zones.
- Help reduce stress by giving each child a chance to have a holiday.
