Camp T.R.E.E. Program (Teach, Respect, Educate and Empower) has been created and designed to provide children ages 7-13 with a structured, caring, and enhanced learning environment for six weeks throughout the summer months. With this program, campers get a chance to learn games, meet new people, and have a healthy and active summer.

The T.R.E.E. Program not only enhances the skills of  young children, but also promotes skills enhancement and development in our growing youth. The Fathers Making a Difference Board of Directors and staff ensure that the programs offered are run and operated by professionals in a proper manner, to guarantee that each participant is taught the values of self-esteem, respect for others, and has an understanding of the critical worth and impact a family unit plays on an individual.

And the Scavenger Hunt begins!

High school students are provided with summer employment opportunities, allowing them to gain employable skills, and complete required community hours. By engaging in activities that develop and increase a child’s self-esteem, and enhance their perspective on life, Fathers Making A Difference promotes success in your child’s overall development.
