Making A Difference For A Lifetime

Before making the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, Sergeant Henry Prendes dreamed of establishing a summer camp for inner-city youth. The fulfillment of that dream, Henry’s Place, will be much more than just a “fun summer camp”. Our goal is to provide life-changing experiences, instruction, and opportunities to at-risk and underprivileged children and youth — experiences that will equip them to succeed in facing the challenges of growing up in the inner- city.

Did you know?

  • That youth living in disadvantaged urban areas are at greater risk for smoking, trying alcohol and using drugs?
  • That high school dropout rates are 12-15% worse in central city urban areas than in suburban, town, and rural areas and that high school dropouts are 2 times as likely to be unemployed, over 3 times as likely to get arrested, 6 times more likely to be an unwed single parent, and 7 times more likely to be on government assistance?
  • That urban crime rates are about 3 times greater than rural crime rates and urban violent crime is about 4 times greater?
  • That 98% of gang members are either dead, in prison or maimed for life?

While the above facts are alarming, together we can make a difference!

Each summer, Henry’s Place will partner with Las Vegas area faith-based and secular community groups to identify approximately 500 at-risk youth, will provide them week-long life-changing camp experiences in beautiful Southern Utah, and then will aggressively encourage follow-up with mentoring organizations in their home communities (e.g. churches, Boys and Girls Clubs).

WE RENT OUR LODGE OUT!

We recently built a beautiful 9000 sq ft lodge that includes group meeting/eating space, lobby, lounge, 9 guest rooms, commercial kitchen, laundry, restrooms, and shaded outdoor spaces in front and back. The meeting room (“Henry’s Hall”) is configurable for multiple purposes with tables and chairs and includes a video projector/screen and a 12-channel sound system.

We also have Cabins. Our two cozy heated/cooled cabins each have bunkbeds to sleep 10, as well as indoor showers/vanities/toilets. Each cabin has an outdoor covered porch. Visit our website for more information on renting out our facilities when camp is not going on.
