For campers in the Southern FVSRA service area (North Aurora, Aurora, Montgomery, Sugar Grove & Oswego)
Camp Rising allow campers to become more independent while building self-esteem and confidence in their abilities. Each camper will participate in a diverse set of age-appropriate activities that develop and build skills through leisure. Staff encourage campers to participate in every planned activity using creative motivational tools and lead the group with fun, rewarding games. Campers will fulfill certain rotating responsibilities such as line leaders, lunch clean-up and team leaders. Staff focus on positive reinforcement in a non-competitive environment, coordinating activities that are intrinsically rewarding including: creative arts, dance, movement and sports skills. A focus on team building and collaboration are implemented during team sports and games at the camp site, and while at the pool.
