Camp Rising Sun Clinton
I see my daughter more confident, she has a strong bond with the other girls that were at CRS. She was more cooperative at home with her chores, and more talkative with me. She came back happy for all the experiences that she loved over there, valuing and appreciating more what she has, more conscious about social and economic factors, not just at home, but in other environments.

The Clinton campus for young women is characterized by a series of large, connected buildings where campers gather throughout the day for dining and activities, including instructions, indoor sports (there is a full-size indoor basketball court), theatre and dance, and good conversation.
In addition, the campus includes a soccer field, basketball court and swimming pool, as well as a series of small buildings on “cabin hill” where campers pursue their interests in art, nature, journalism, music and other activities. Near the cabins is a large outdoor stage used for theatrical productions and special camp events. There is also a pond and a network of trails where girls can find quiet places to think and enjoy the natural setting.
Set back in a maple grove, campers at Clinton sleep in 16 wooden platform tents on “tent hill,” where past campers have built a swing and a number of tables and benches for girls to chat in the shade.
