Canyon Creek Sports Camp is a sports camp located in the Angeles National Forest.  ACFC has been sending children from our foundation to their summer camps since 2001. 

The Harold Robinson Foundation was established by Canyon Creek Sports Camp owner, Jeff Robinson in memory of his father. The foundation raises funds to enable inner city youth from Los Angeles to use the facility during the off season of camp. Weekend camps are held for school grades including parents and teachers. The weekends offer a bonding time and teamwork building that would never happen in the classroom or at home. Watch a video of our program together.

Life Skills Sports Academy is a program to help inner city youth reach their potential through sports.

    Our Mission

    A Chance for Children strives to empower at-risk youth by providing the opportunities to set goals and the tools to achieve them. We fight to instill the belief that no child is limited by their surroundings or upbringing. By encouraging dreams and consistently exposing them to new experiences outside the dangers and struggles of their daily lives each child will have a chance for a better future.
