Camp Rise KC
COVID-19 Update as of March 22, 2020
At this time, Camp Rise KC will operate "business as usual" until further notice. Though our Staff are working from home to honor social distancing, we are hopeful that our summer schedule will not be interrupted by these circumstances. We will continue to closely monitor the latest information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and keep our Camp Rise Family updated should there be any changes to our summer camp session.
Camp Rise KC is a Missouri not-for-profit organization which provides a free, all-inclusive, overnight summer camp experience for youth ages 8-18 in the greater Kansas City area.
We believe all children deserve access to safe, engaging, and activity-packed, summer fun! Offering this free opportunity is our way of bringing the magic of summer camp to the lives of children who may face barriers from attending traditional summer camps and programs. Camp Rise KC ensures that equal access to this experience is granted to each camper. We release campers and their families from the financial burden of overnight camps with free enrollment and by providing backpacks, clothing, shoes, toiletries, bedding and all other necessary "camp gear" for all of our campers. In addition to breaking down financial barriers, Camp Rise KC is proud to accept children facing mobility challenges, as our camp grounds are 100% ADA accessible.
Our youth deserve the opportunity to gain new, enriching experiences and valuable life-skills while being empowered to celebrate their independence and resilience.
