WHAT WE'RE DOING

In the simplest form, we are having a unique camp this summer, July 13 through July 19, during which we will be transforming the lives of 20 diverse teenagers from across the country. We want to film this journey as a documentary so that we can provide everyone with the same tools as these teens. It is our goal to continue to connect with mainstream media providing content that is thought provoking, igniting larger conversations around the issues that often divide communities. 

THE CAMP:

MENTORING, OPPORTUNITY, RESILIENCE, EMPOWERING 

RPCP and BMH are excited to provide an Opportunity to bring together 20 young adults from diverse backgrounds for the adventure of their lives. At this seven day overnight mountain camp, experiential learning, leadership development and art-based workshops will give these youth vital tools to lead the future.

We will be Mentoring campers through these Empowering workshops to help them find purpose, build Resilience, and develop MORE:

• Relationship & Communication Skills

 • Emotional Intelligence

• Conflict Resolution Skills

THE DOCUMENTARY:

Camp M.O.R.E. and CAMP The Documentary is being created as a result of the work of both The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding and Be More Heroic. Their aligned missions have inspired thousands across the country to lead positive, proactive and courageous lives. 

CAMP  follows a diverse group of twenty teenagers from all across the country in the mountains of Big Bear, California throughout a transformative seven-day art and leadership camp called CAMP MORE. Viewers will watch this unscripted journey as each teenager engages in experiential workshops, resolves personal conflict, forms lasting friendships and becomes a confident and compassionate leader.
