Mission

Camp Compass Academy is a unified effort to introduce urban middle and high school students to various outdoor activities. Students are simultaneously introduced to a network of community businesses and working role models. Camp Compass students develop into an educated and influenced population understanding conservation, sportsmen’s philosophies, and their activities.

Philosophy

It’s our passion for children that brings a new-found quality to their lives. We believe that every child, no matter what circumstances they may be in, should have the opportunity to experience positive people and activities. Therefore, we are constantly spending time with students in the field, in the water, and in the classroom.

Our students feel like they belong to a family. It is vital in today’s tough environments that we as adults provide not only advice, but an ear as well. Basically, we love our kids and they will always have their Camp Compass family to listen to them!
