Mission + Values

Our Mission + Purpose

Camp Ma-He-Tu empowers young women to become the best that they can be. We provide them freedom from the daily pressures of life so they may grow together in a supportive and fun camping community to develop and embrace their spirituality, appreciation of others, and their value as individuals. We provide a safe and fun outdoor camping experience in a supportive environment that fosters mental, spiritual, physical, and social growth.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Camp Ma-He-Tu, everyone is special.

Camp Ma-He-Tu believes in the dignity and the intrinsic value of every human being. We affirm and support young people and adults from all experiences, races, nationalities, ethnicities, religions, socio-economic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and any other category people use to define themselves.

We celebrate each individual and encourage campers to express themselves freely and be their authentic selves, while the staff and their peers cheer them on.

In the “real-world” children still face a wide variety of barriers to feeling included and are not always accepted for what makes them unique. We feel it is our responsibility to create an environment in which all campers feel not only included, but celebrated.
