Into the Woods: Camp Rise Up preps teens with life skills

Camp Rise Up has become such a pivotal piece of programming for kids ages 12 to 15 who live in temporary housing. Specifically designed to meet their unique needs, the camp combines old-fashioned fun and practical lessons in life skills for those who don’t have access to the same rites of passage as their housed peers.

Childhood, a luxury for just a few

In the nineteenth century, long before child-labor laws, or workplace safety regulations at all, childhood among the poor was all-too-often often a daily grind of arduous factory work. Returning home to the tenements meant cramped conditions and inadequate meals. With the founding of The Floating Hospital came a chance for children to spend time outdoors on the sea around physicians committed to their well-being. Work was left to the adults and they could enjoy a carefree childhood, if only for a day.
