Changing the world… One child at a time.

Who We Are

Dream Camp Foundation



The mission of the ESF Dream Camp Foundation is to transform the lives of underserved youth through innovative yearlong programs that nurture the individual, educate the mind, and inspire the spirit. In partnership with families and schools, Dream Camp develops young leaders who embrace challenges, seize opportunities and overcome obstacles, and are inspired to live their dreams.
Dream Camp’s success is built upon the work and dedication of our staff and mentors. Mentoring has proved extremely effective in addressing a broad range of issues that plague youth in inner cities. Youth paired with mentors tend to stay in school, avoid gang involvement, and avoid drug use. Dream Camp understands the importance of mentoring and our students reap the benefits.


Our exceptional team of educational professionals and college students are committed to the well-being and development of our children. Dream Camp mentors are advocates, role models, teachers, sounding boards, authority figures and friends. They do more than just work with our students. They work with parents and schools to ensure each child’s needs are met.
