Camp Rise KC

2022 Camp Update

Hello Camp Rise Family, we miss all of you and hope this school year has been successful! Typically, we are sending out sign up forms this time of year. Our staff has made the decision to pause camp in 2022. At this time, our Camp Director is focused on taking care of family after a family member's critical health scare. It has been a difficult few years for everyone. The Camp Rise Staff is going to take some time to refresh and come back for another amazing summer. Thinking of you wonderful people always!


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.
