The theme is friendship! During school time months Wilderness Works provides chaperoned overnight stays in comfortable, child-friendly girls and boys dormitory buildings originally built and occupied by the Immanuel Bible College. Fridays are full of activities (one of which we will host as part of this project), while Saturdays are spent doing some kind of outdoorsy excursion.
The Partner Organization:
Wilderness Works provides at-risk children a place to find caring adults and fun activities that teach and reach. Their mission is to empower and enrich disadvantaged and at-risk children living in urban Atlanta with year-round experiential education, recreation and outdoor adventure. Wilderness Works is a youth development agency serving homeless and disadvantaged children living primarily in Dekalb and Fulton counties.
