CAMP TO THE WORLD (CTW) will celebrate one’s identity; uplift an individual’s self esteem, strengthen the character as well as hone their leadership skills. It will do all of this while respecting the inherent differences in all races, classes, religious groupings and cultures.
Campers will be taught to use the power of love to overcome whatever challenge may arise in their life through their participation in varying recreational, educational, artistic and sporting activities. The values of humility, patience, respect, tolerance, perseverance, kindness, courage and forgiveness will be reinforced using as their moral compass the tested and proven worth of truth and justice.
The Mission of CTW is to provide the atmosphere and mentors conducive to enhance the values of humility, love, and respect for others and the creation. This mission will be accomplished by the camp providing the campers the opportunities to observe, and internalize positive behaviors.

There is a general demand for recreational and leadership training and creative learning in Jamaica. Several religious groups visit Jamaica as “work-teams”, their focus “giving back to the communities”.
The focus of CTW will be different and will target others, especially the Jamaican Diaspora.
