Your Support Makes an Impact


In a culture that is obsessed with screens, Common Ground offers a refreshing break for the mind and soul. A nonprofit nestled on 30 acres in the beautiful Vermilion River Valley – we offer a variety of experiences for guests to unplug and reconnect with themselves, with others and with nature.

When a principal is deciding whether to bring a group of students to Common Ground for a day of teambuilding or inviting us to their campus to facilitate our social and emotional learning program, Life School, the decision often comes down to cost.

We believe cost should never be a barrier to life changing experiences.

With your support, together we can:

  • Give more children the unforgettable memories of summer camp.
  • Give students a truly unique educational experience with our STEM based canopy classroom and team building adventure.
  • Give youth the tools they need to better navigate life with our social and emotional learning workshops.

These are just a few ways you can partner with us to support our community.

Your support helps us to reduce and sometimes eliminate the costs for our guests associated with these programs.
