Camp Rise KC

Covid-19 Update as of May 15, 2020

We aim to protect the health and safety of our campers, staff and families. Due to the world-wide pandemic, Camp Rise KC will not offer an in-person camping session in 2020.


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.
