What We Do
Bruce Irons Camp Fund's MISSION is to ignite our students’ potential by expanding their confidence, connections, and horizons. We achieve this through summer camps, year-round enrichment programs, and mentor relationships for self-motivated, underserved students.
Our VISION is that every child, regardless of zip code, has access to transformative life experiences through camp, mentorship, and educational opportunities.
Our CORE VALUES are that:
- Every student possesses unique potential that must be identified, encouraged, and amplified.
- Zip code and parental wealth should not decide children’s destinies.
- Student support must be early, consistent, and ongoing.
- Nature is a powerful teacher.
- Adventure and achievement build confidence and courage.
- Enriching summer experiences should not be a luxury.
- Broadening a child’s social network expands their choices and aspirations.
- Everyone needs a mentor to help them navigate their life.
- Quality mentoring transforms both students and mentors.
- Our students’ families are partners and allies who deserve our respect.
- Diversity cultivates crucial understanding and empathy across differences.
- Equity is year-round, long-term work that requires collaborative community partnerships.
