The camp was formed to help youth escape the trials and tribulations of the inner-city to an environment that demonstrates the values of life in the country. 1 Corinthians 3:6 states: One have planted, One watered; but God gives the increase. We teach the youth about God’s creation. Living in Chicago, Reginald Stewart Sr, the founder, witnessed many young men and women become victim to the city streets. He found an alternative to the violent crimes in the city by visiting his family’s farm. With a heart for youth, Mr. Stewart believed this escape was a great opportunity to provide an outlet and to keep youth on the right track in life. In 1999, Brenda and Reginald Stewart Sr started Run-A-Way Buckers camp 20 years ago, and the camp continues to be a staple in the community.
