Risks and challenges

Of course there are many risks involved in putting on a kids camp, but that is precisely why we want your help! We want to do everything the right way, the safe and legal way. From insurance to location, we're considering every factor and making choices consciously. But guess what? Many of these important steps cost money...and that's where you come in! You will have a hand in helping us create a safe and equitable youth camp in New Orleans by donating right here. One specific challenge we will face is the fact that our project timeline must be very firm. We want to serve the needs of our community during a very specific time. Therefore we cannot really adjust the overall project timeline because the winter break camp will need to take place when New Orleans youth are on a break from school. We plan to overcome this challenge by setting firm goals and deadlines and really sticking to them. We also plan to hold ourselves accountable by sharing our journey on our social media accounts. We plan to be transparent and open all along the way because we want to achieve our goals by truly working together!
