A New Day, a Better Day is on the Horizon!
Camp Horizon is a registered 501c3 public charity organization offering year-round programs to Metro Atlanta’s youth in foster care. We work to restore dignity and hope to children, teens and young adults who have been abused and neglected — empowering them to make good decisions and lead healthy, productive lives.
From humble beginnings, we’ve grown to provide year-round programming for children aged 8-23. Partnering with Atlanta area Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and Camp Twin Lakes, we provide life-changing experiences at state of the art camping facilities.
Although it wasn’t our original plan, over the years, we have become a consistent and healthy “family” for the foster children we serve. We have become a safe place to grow and be loved along the way. Our loyal volunteers and intentional instruction teach the children life-skills and provide connections they may be missing in other areas of their lives.
Through our core values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and RESILIENCE (The Three R’s, as our campers like to say) and our daily self esteem class at camp, our campers learn self-awareness, anger management, personal safety, appropriate boundaries, and self-control. These skills mixed with endless encouragement help inspire hope for their futures.
Camp Horizon has helped hundreds of emotionally wounded children grow into healthier adults. Our former campers will be the people who impact their communities with great strength and courage. Not only will they break the cycle of abuse in their own lives, but they’ll also be prepared to help prevent abuse in the lives of those around them.
