Swimming, boating, hiking, friending, learning, discovering, oh my!
38 campers, 100s of supporters, 5 campfires, trees, dirt and bugs make for an unforgettable summer. Our Camp RiseUp for teens living in temporary housing kicked off its 2019 session with “amazingness!” Thank you to all of our supporters who made this possible. You can still give to support this vital program for NYC teens. The summer of 2020 is just around the corner!
At Camp RiseUp, teens from homeless families can exercise, build confidence, and learn about self-care in a beautiful, natural setting. Your generous donation will help send a teen to Rhinebeck, New York for a week of swimming, hiking, and interactive health education classes on topics like communication and consent. For many of these young people, Camp RiseUp represents their first encounter with nature, a positive experience that can shape their future and their perception of health and relationships.
