Elevation and camp started as a dream in the Executive Director's heart over 20 years ago. This non-profit organization was created in direct response to the growing number of children that are lacking a sense of hope, direction, purpose, and resiliency regardless of their background. The dream was to have a program that would provide children with a positive, fun, safe, and exciting environment where they feel free to explore their gifts, experience new things, and grow socially, emotionally, and academically during the summer and school year. In addition, a place that would leave an impression they would never forget as they travel through their journey in life.
Meet the Director
Sophia Estrella is the Founder & Executive Director of Elevation Community Center. She is married to Fred Estrella and has 4 children Jazmyn (21), Marissa (20), Tatyana(17) and Nicholas(13). Sophia has a Master's degree in Social Work and a Director's Certification in Early Childhood. She has worked with children and youth for over 25 years. She has over 10 years experience working in both private and public schools and over 20 years experience as a supervisor of a summer daycamp program, day care and social service agencies.
Sophia believes that her role is to help children and adults understand that they were born for a purpose and that they are already equipped with the talents and strengths they need to fulfill that purpose. She believes in creating a loving, caring and supportive environment where children feel safe to take risks and develop the gifts they have inside.
"Who has children on summer break from school who wake up excited and ready for their day at the crack of dawn? I DO!! We have four children and they all have experienced this camp over the years. They love going and are excited every day to discover something new and fun. This is a camp unlike any other. They truly care about each and every camper!"
