Our story

American Youth's Beginning

Founded in 2004 from an idea of a college student to now being the largest fundraising, camp, and recruiting event company in Arizona, we feel humbled and blessed to help the coaches of the next generation accomplish their goals every single day both on and off the field.

When we first started, our sole focus was on fundraising for high school aged athletic, performing arts, and other extracurricular groups. For almost a decade this is all we did and we got very good at it. We pioneered new ways to raise, smarter ways to raise, and more effective way to raise and in turn our groups made more money! We made another huge splash in 2018 with the launch of our mobile fundraising sales app. Since its launch, it has become the envy of the industry and our teams continue to exceed expectations year over year.

In 2012, after seeing our impact from successfully fundraising with our teams, we wanted to see how else we could help. That is when long time client and friend Donnie Yantis ask if we could help him with his football team's pre-season away camp. After a few discussions on what he was looking for and what was missing from his current options, we set out to provide a solution. We had no idea it would grow into the solution for over 1,500 coaches and 15,000 athletes over the next decade.

Our mission

Build Individuals, Leaders & Teams

It was after seeing the impact of our solutions that we adopted a mission statement more focused on our end goal instead of the steps to get there. We were not just a fundraising company helping teams obtain financial success. We were not just a camp company making team camps easier for coaches. We were a catalyst to help all coaches and leaders Build Individuals, Leaders, & Teams (or BILT for short).  

Since that realization, there isn't a day that goes by or a decision that is made without first thinking on how this will build individuals, leaders, and teams. Whether a football coach or a band director, we feel privileged to help you build the future of your community, your state, and our country.


Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.

I can say that over the decades I coach High School Football in Arizona and the numerous camps we attended as a team, hands down BILT Camp put on the best camps we ever went to.

Attending your camp with my team added the missing “thing” that we never had in years prior. Definitely one of the difference makers this season that allowed us to become State Champions!
