Camp Rise Up: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Inter-generational Homelessness
We’d like to thank you, our donors and friends, for your generous support, which enabled homeless teens to attend our annual Camp Rise Up this past summer. At camp, the kids experienced all that summer has to offer, including swimming, hiking, and boating. They also attended 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 were 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.
As you plan your year-end giving, please consider renewing your commitment to Camp Rise Up and The Floating Hospital’s other vital services for children and families experiencing homelessness.
