10 AM: Parent feed back to camp organizers
The 912 Pikes Peak Patriots Constitutional Champions Camp is truly a labor of love for the founding principles of our great nation. Staffed entirely by 912 and community volunteers, the camp provides four fun days of learning true American history no longer taught in our public schools. A program for parents is also provided bringing elected officials from the state and local levels to a true one on one experience many busy parents just do not have the time to pursue. Information on other areas of interest from the community completes the parents program.
Our program is modeled after the Constitutional Champions Foundation (CCF) curriculum. While we work closely with CCF, our camp is run independently as are all camps around the country. This year CCF based camps are scheduled for all 50 states.
The Constitutional Champions Foundation is a not-for-profit 501 (C) (3) tax exempt organization formed to meet the needs of the youth of this nation. The mission of Constitutional Champions is to involve the youth of our country through educational programs, school groups, and community service projects. Our goal is to build an organization that will be the front runner in providing education for youth, on the constitution and founding fathers, and will be the leading example on living the principles and values necessary to bring back the founding principles upon which this nation was founded.
