We believe that all children deserve enriching out-of-school experiences that positively affect their chances of success in school and in life.

Who We Are

Our mission is to ignite students’ potential by expanding their confidence, connections, and horizons. We achieve this through summer camps, year-round enrichment programs, and mentor relationships for self-motivated, underserved students.

Our vision is that every child, regardless of zip code, has access to transformative life experiences through camp, mentorship, and educational opportunities.

Our Impact

I’m really excited to say that I got to grow up with Wayfinders. And I got to just be a part of so many awesome opportunities. I was presented with so many resources. With Wayfinders they’re not just with you in the summer and sending you off to camp. They’re with you throughout the whole year. You’re connected with your mentor, with Mollie, with volunteers, and the program itself for the whole year.” – Faduma, Wayfinders Scholar

Camp Locations

Created in the memory of the late Irwin Open Elementary Principal R. Bruce Irons, Wayfinders is dedicated to sending low income, high potential students to summer camp and providing year-round enrichment and mentoring.
