Held on the lush 250-acre rural campus of Camp Ramapo in the Hudson Valley, Camp Rise Up is for young people, ages 12-15, and free to families living in homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses and other temporary housing.

Camp Rise Up is all about exploration and discovery, offering youth the opportunity to learn about their physical development and emotions as well as important practical skills to help them to stay in school and gain employment.
This year’s camp curricula includes workshops, outdoor games and activities designed to foster personal strength, self-esteem and other essential life skills:
Counselors in training learn higher-functioning interpersonal skills such as management, empathy, listening, negotiation, etc., that help prepare them for employment.
