Due to COVID-19 precautions and campsite closures, we’re “camping” in our own backyard this summer with classroom lessons in Long Island City and field trips around the five boroughs. The Floating Hospital’s Camp RiseUp is all about exploring: kids will learn about their physical development and emotions. They’ll stretch their minds–and bodies! They’ll develop strategies for making smart choices and navigating conflict.
Lesson agenda and field excursions include workshops, games and activities designed to build vital life skills. Topics include: puberty, communication, consent, peer pressure, identity, relationships, drugs and alcohol, and boundaries.
Camp RiseUp is for campers 12-15, free to families living in homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses and other temporary housing.
