Camp Rise Above
The Lonon Foundation has partnered with Camp Rise Above to provide a summer camp experience to children in our UPLIFT program.
Camp Rise Above is a unique non-profit organization that provides fun, life changing camp experiences to children with serious illnesses, life challenges, and disabilities. They believe all children deserve to experience the magic of childhood, regardless of their medical status. They currently offer many programs for campers and families throughout the year. All of their programs are provided free of charge.
“Giving children strength for the journey.”
About Camp Rise Above
water park fun
arts & crafts
Beginning in Summer 2019, Camp Rise Above will have a summer camp that is for children with brain tumors, their siblings, and in partnership with The Lonon Foundation, children affected by their parent’s cancer diagnosis.
This is a great opportunity for your children to spend more time with the kids they've met through UPLIFT and meet new people in their community. Plus, UPLIFT volunteers that your children already know will be counselors. This is a great way for your kids to get to know these "big kids" even better.
Your child will get to enjoy water park fun, paddle boating, fishing, archery, wall climbing, arts & crafts, and more! Support staff includes Charleston County Parks and Recreation's professional activities staff, on-site medical team, and trained volunteer coordinators to ensure your child has a safe and absolutely amazing camp experience!
