Camp RISE (Remember, Inspire, Strengthen, Empower), is a grief camp for campers ages 8-18 who have had a family member die from drug use. Camp RISE, staffed by Procter counselors, will incorporate all the traditional Procter Summer Camp activities, schedules, and traditions, as well as group grief therapy, led by professional therapists. Registration will be by application. As Procter develops this program, please contact Andrea Foote if you know an eligible camper who might attend or if you have a skill to share.
There is an application process for Camp RISE to make sure that the camper is ready for the camp experience based on our grief counselors interview with the family.
The cost per camper is $385, however Camp RISE will be offered at no cost to families. To make this possible, please consider sponsoring a Camp RISE camper. Groups from churches are encouraged to sponsor a camper or cabin of campers together. Donate online here.
