Camp Rise Above Day Camps

** Important update regarding COVID-19**

CRA is committed to providing a safe environment for our campers and volunteers. We have made the difficult decision to cancel our summer camp sessions in 2019. For more information, please visit our Coronavirus Update page.

If you are a past or current camp family, we invite you to register for our “Happy Camper Kits,” to be distributed in June and July! To learn more and secure your spot, please click here and sign up by May 15.

Since 2013, Camp Rise Above has provided free camp experiences for children with serious illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges. While we will not host in-person summer camps this year due to COVID-19, we are excited to still serve the following populations with various other initiatives in the coming months.
