Youth Camps

With a mission to promote development, access, education, preservation, diverse transit and sensible use of parks and trails, youth camps are an important goal for the organization. After all, parks and trails are not for the benefit of a single generation. Their value is timeless and experience with nature relates to all of human history and vision for the future.

Development of camp programs will be based on Mile Zero Trail Association (MZTA) members' interests. MZTA currently supports three options: Camp adventures will be developed for members' children; Their support and additional donations may help make it possible for children who might not otherwise have these kinds of impactful learning expreiences to attend camp; And, a permanent camp may be developed for use by MZTA and other organizations.

As a non-profit organization, camp and travel programs are not planned or intended to be commercial tours. While some may help the organization generate revenue for key programs through donations, most are expected to be offered at-cost for organization members to ensure that the benefits of the mission and goals are extended to its members. MZTA members are invited and needed to be involved in planning.

Organization members have developed charitable camps in the past. Benefits, concepts and photos are shown below.
