Heroes Camp is a daily Faith-based youth ministry serving young, fatherless men in Mishawaka, Indiana, free of charge. Pat Magley started Heroes Camp in 1989 with the challenge to the local kids – “beat me one-on-one in a game of basketball, I’ll buy you a brand-new pair of sneakers of your choice.” Over 60 kids took his challenge, and he used this opportunity to talk to them as a father would–giving life lessons in everything from identity, to hygiene, to effective communication, to leadership and respect. In the beginning, his wife BJ would cook meals for all the young men, and Pat would lead them in Bible studies and life talks before having group workouts and basketball games. Their current facility houses three basketball courts, a kitchen, locker rooms, a barbershop, and now, a recording studio. Their studio, with help from All Pro Integrated Systems, will be stocked with professional equipment including Pro Tools, professional microphones, and a Dolby Atmos speaker system.
As a whole, our company is dedicated to engaging our community. How we do so is largely driven by our employees’ personal values and community outreach goals. We give each of our employees an opportunity to promote and serve causes that matter to them.
