Camp Rise Up: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Inter-generational Homelessness
At Camp Rise Up, campers experience all that summer has to offer, including swimming, hiking, and boating. They attend interactive classes on important topics such as communication, peer pressure/bullying, consent, sexuality, and identity. For many campers, this experience marked their first encounter with nature; they are out of the city and away from the stress of shelter living. Watch here to see what these resilient young people gained from this one-of-a kind experience.
