Youth R.I.S.E Summer Camp

Summer 2023

Allowing students to join in a place of growth and enjoyment was a pleasure to experience. Local students were able to make new friends and have new experiences with us. This is a summer we will not forget!



Students were guided through reading selections that were relevant stories for their age range. Retaining reading through the summer is a great way to decrease the summer reading gap between grades. It also helped students find ways to fall in love with literacy and creative writing.


Exposing students to weekly lessons in science, technology, engineering and math can aid in critical thinking skills and career exploration. This summer, campers did experiments and multimedia projects.

Physical Education

Keeping the body pumping is essential! Students moved their bodies and stayed active with the help of programing from Forging Youth Resilience.

Visual Art

We are keeping creativity alive in the summer! Students had the opportunity to paint and create masterpieces.


Students learned to express themselves through dance at R.I.S.E. Campers learned choreography and were able to perform for the community at the end of the summer.
