Our Mission & Philosophy

CIMI is operated by Guided Discoveries, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to:

Make a difference in the lives of children through unique opportunities for discovery.

This mission drives the development of the CIMI program. CIMI makes a positive difference by providing children with opportunities for discovery in marine science and ocean adventure, as well as in themselves.

The Impact of Camp

CIMI and Guided Discoveries have always recognized the power of the ‘camp experience.’ Spending time away from home for multiple days and taking on new challenges allows children to grow in a way that only camp can do. Camp provides a safe and supportive environment for children to step out of their comfort zones and become the best version of themselves.

Meet Our Team

CIMI would not be what it is today without the people who push this program and its mission forward. Every staff member, whether a brand new employee or a member of our experienced Leadership Team, has shown a true passion for Guided Discoveries and changing lives.
