Each Friday our campers are taken on field trips. L.I.F.T as We Climb Camp believes in exposing our children to the world around them. Youth should interact with culture, and experience the arts beyond their own backyard. LAWC Camp organizes trips to various places, such as the Children's Museum of Manhattan, weekly.

Every Wednesday campers will gather in solidarity to engage with a motivational speaker. Speakers will address a different value each week, that will ultimately instill in young minds the characteristics of a leader. Young minds benefit from hearing from and  interacting with living testimonies of what they too can accomplish.

  • Enjoy breakfast and lunch;

Boot Camp To success Male Mentoring Program

We have noticed a huge problem that is very evident in all urban communities. Our young men are in need of positive male role models to teach them and mold them in to the great men that the desire to become. With that in mind, L.I.F.T As We Climb, Inc. created and put into place our Boot Camp To Success program which takes young men from Newark, NJ and surrounding urban areas in to a safe environment. We mix fitness, team building, mentoring, tutoring, leadership training, and field trips all together to create a program of substance for young males.
