our work

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.  Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.  In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. 1 Timothy 6:17-19

Youth Camps

Youth Camp provides a wonderful world of discovery for boys, girls, and teens. It is a place filled with intense fun, and often packed with real life experiences. At youth camps, lifelong friendships are developed, new skills are learned and memories that last a lifetime are made.


The Bohne Foundation is proud of partner with major non-profit organizations and groups to provide this critical developmental opportunity in the lives of hundreds of young people all over the city of Chicago.

Decades of war, AIDS, illnesses and hunger have left sub-Saharan Africa with more than 45 million orphans. We believe that every child deserves to be held, loved, to hope, dream and enjoy a productive life.


The Bohne Foundation is responding to this enormous need by partnering with local churches and credible organizations in Uganda and Kenya to help feed, shelter and care for these precious children.
