Mission of Grace

+ Saving Camp Grace +

Project Elevate formed as a nonprofit group to save the historic property of Camp Grace. Since 1953, Camp Grace has been a special part of the Pinetop-Lakeside community. Our Camp was recently put in jeopardy when the land became available for strip mall developers. We could not stand by to see this precious camp bulldozed.


Now, as we look to restore Camp Grace and the surrounding land of the White Mountains, we wish to spread our message through our camps, of hope and empowerment. We believe that a single moment can make a difference in the life of our youth, and that collective moments can greatly impact the world. As we elevate ourselves individually, we elevate our family, we elevate our community, we elevate our planet. 


Project Elevate has started our restoration effort by establishing our 3 Pillars:

Leadership, Performance and Unity.


When we learned that Camp Grace was in jeopardy, we jumped at the chance to save this historic landmark. In the first few weeks we have had members of our community come to the campgrounds to tell us their stories. One woman remembered going to a church camp over 40 years ago. Another man said he was baptised on this land in the 80's. A high school student told us he had attended a soccer camp here 4 or 5 years ago. 

As we invest our time and gather givers and philanthropists, we have been receiving testimony that we are doing the right thing. We are expanding to accommodate for over 200 people in our different cabin and farm house options. We hope that we will live up to the expectation of the Show Low, Pinetop, Lakeside, Snow Flake, Apache and Navajo communities. We promise to do our best, and we believe each of you will be astonished with the results! We cannot wait to unveil our plans and show our progress! 

We aim to empower youth to stand up and stand out as they contribute their part to improve the world through our 3 pillars (Leadership, Performance, Unity).

Project Elevate and Mission of Grace know that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but through the actions of our initiatives.

Our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together with the community we could enhance our youths' opportunities to succeed and overcome challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Elevate Outreach: A program that rewards kindness to others.

Empowering the ONE

This is also called our "Box Program" because of the important of what campers, aka 'Creators,' aka 'Builders' take home...

With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for for youth to excel in the leadership, education, arts, sports, science and technology. With access to the right resources, our youth will become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.

ONE Step at a Time

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find opportunities for EACH child to excel. Combining art, education, sports, science and technology at the Lodge, youth have an invigorating and safe environment to lead, perform and unite together as they explore their interests.

ONE unified effort

At ELEVATE, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the troubling issue of youth drug addiction and suicide. 


Studies show that a creative process can increase the level of dopamine in one's brain. The resulting feeling of euphoria can naturally reward good, creative work. 


If you're looking to make a difference or know of a candidate who could take part in this sort of camp, we invite you to reach out! Start making a difference today! 

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."
