CAMP RISE UP 2021

August 29-September 3, 2020

Home/Camp Rise Up

We’re planning for another unforgettable summer at Camp Ramapo in Rhinebeck, New York. The Floating Hospital’s Camp Rise Up 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 activities include workshops, games and activities designed to build vital life skills. Essential health topics such as puberty, communication, consent, peer pressure, identity, relationships, substance use, and boundaries are on the agenda. Outdoor and creative activities including sports, arts and crafts, nature hikes, music, and swimming and boating emphasize social negotiation skills and enhance self-respect in an affirming, natural environment.

Camp Rise Up is for campers 12-15, free to families living in homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses and other temporary housing.

For information about attending Camp Rise Up, contact Meghan Miller: mmiller@thefloatinghospital.org.

FOR KIDS

“I WAS MAD AT MY MOM FOR SIGNING ME UP. BUT, AS THE DAYS PASSED, EVERYBODY STARTED TO FEEL LIKE A FAMILY TO ME.”

At Camp Rise Up, kids living homelessness 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 Rise Up represents their first encounter with nature, a positive experience that can shape their health, relationships and future.
