RISE Camp 2019 Week 8

This week we were sad to say goodbye to everybody. Thank you to the incredible counselors and employees of RISE Camp for making this summer one to remember. Thank you to our campers for your energy, engagement, and friendship. Finally, a huge thank you is in order for the MB Plus Office and RISE Camp Office. None of this would be possible without you!

Campers were excited to attend the RISE Camp Film Festival this Wednesday. Jonah, Nathaniel, Rossi, and the other counselors from Movie Magic Makers and Animation have been hard at work all summer to make sure this festival came together. This year some great movies premiered including Keeping Up with the Kampers, Counselors in Black, and many wonderful camper-made animations! The films were instant classics, and received an overwhelmingly positive review from everybody.

Congratulations to all the campers who worked hard both onscreen and off to create such incredible productions! Click the following links to see them yourself:

Course Highlight

Nature, Get Dirty!

This summer Nature, Get Dirty! was run by counselors Isabelle and Ellen. In this course, campers get to explore the fun of nature by participating in various activities. This week campers had a scavenger hunt, build a home-made bird feeder, created gnome homes, and even ate edible “soil” layers! Campers in this course had a blast all summer, and learned a bit about the Earth every single day.
