Resources for Our Camp Family

It is my responsibility to use this tiny platform to provide support for our camp family. It is also my responsibility to do absolutely everything in my power as a citizen of Los Angeles, as a mom, as a woman, as a business owner, as a youth development leader, and as a white person. I hope these resources find you safe. Thank you to our friends over at Brave Trails for compiling many of these resources.
