Welcome Bournelyf Special Camp (pronounced "born-a-leaf") was founded in 1980 as a service project of the Church of the Loving Shepherd, a congregation welcoming people of all religious backgrounds, and one of its congregants, Jim Scanlon. In 1989 the camp was incorporated as a Pennsylvania nonprofit organization with its own Board of Directors and by-laws, drawing parents and community members to the board in order to support the broadening of its programs and to expand the camp's ability to serve the community.

The Garage Community and Youth Center was a vacant car garage until 2001, when a local business leader and youth pastor envisioned its roof sheltering something far more valuable than vehicles. The renovated building now is home to services for middle and high school students. After 10 successful years serving students in the Kennett community, The Garage opened a second center in West Grove in 2011. Our mission is to empower youth to pursue their potential academically, relationally, and spiritually.
Since 2001, the Kennett Education Foundation has partnered with the Kennett Consolidated School District to encourage innovative ideas, invest in programs that improve academic progress, promote family involvement and recognize the outstanding achievements of educators.

These contributions originate from individuals, businesses (including matching gifts programs), foundations and other organizations (such as the United Way and the Chester County Community Foundation) that align with our mission and the success of our initiatives.
