Each summer, Henry’s Place will partner with Las Vegas area faith-based and secular community groups to identify approximately 500 at-risk youth, will provide them week-long camp experiences in beautiful Southern Utah, and then will aggressively encourage follow-up with mentoring organizations in their home communities (e.g. local churches, Boys and Girls Clubs).

Henry’s Place will be much more than just a “fun summer camp”. Our goal is to provide life-changing experiences, instruction, and opportunities to at-risk and underprivileged children and youth — experiences that will equip them to succeed in facing the challenges of growing up in the inner-city. Most importantly, Henry’s Place will encourage youth to place their faith in Jesus Christ and to turn to faith as an answer to the challenges that their life circumstances present.
Through generous donations, we already have the land for Henry’s Place and have graded the property, installed utility infrastructure, prepared a parking lot and driveway, and constructed an amphitheater, obstacle course, and maintenance/shop building. Now is the time to start building so that we can start a full camp program by the summer of 2019!
Henry’s Place will accommodate youth summer camp through a lodge with a first-rate dining hall, a pavilion with full technical audio/visual support, an outdoor amphitheater, 6 cabins, a chapel, and exciting recreation facilities (swimming pool, ropes course, sports field, basketball court).
A livestock/equestrian facility and a greenhouse will provide unique opportunities for campers to gain practical experience about God’s creation as they interact with plants and animals. Henry’s Place will also utilize adjoining public lands to provide additional hiking and nature activities.
Support facilities will include housing for staff members in addition to 4 RV pads for staff or volunteers and a maintenance/storage facility.
