The camp, which is part of three facilities that host over 6,300 campers each summer, targets at-risk urban youth. Through Bible study and activities like swimming, sports, and a gravity-defying elevated obstacle course, the camp aims to engage campers while building self-esteem and leadership qualities.
The camp program is offered at a fraction of the original cost in order to accommodate less fortunate families. But the Chiefs covered attendance costs and more during a camper send-off event at Arrowhead Stadium last month. At the event, Spann and the other campers received team-related camping gear, including Chiefs-emblazoned beach towels, team apparel, and other items.
