Camp Rise aims to support youth in the Greater Kansas City area who lack access to affordable summer programming by providing a free, all-inclusive overnight summer camp experience. Upon arrival, campers receive a backpack full of all things necessary to enjoy camp – stress free! Backpack contents include (but are not limited to) bedding, towels, toiletries, sunscreen, flashlight, bug spray, swimsuit, flip flops, socks and underwear. The significance of this “gear” reaches far beyond providing basic necessities for our campers. It allows every one of them to enter our campgrounds on an even playing field. It boosts their self confidence, allows them to be independent and increases their chances for success when entering school in August.
