This year is a special anniversary for Camp Rising Sun, and we hope you will join in the celebration! You can join us at Camp for the 2019 Alumni Reunion, July 19th - July 21st. Reunions are the perfect time to reconnect with Camp, other alums, LAJF Staff and the Board of Directors.
Never made it to a reunion before? The Alumni Reunion occurs between our two Camp sessions allowing our alumni to step back in time and be a camper again. We will start the reunion a bit earlier on Friday so that alumni can meet, get to know, and help us send off the CRS 2019 girls at the end of their session. A reunion is a time to relive your favorite activities, connect with old friends and make new ones. You can even sleep on Tent Hill with your campmates or your whole family.
This summer marks the 30th Anniversary since CRS expanded onto the Clinton campus and the decision to add girls’ programming. Since this is a special year we will have special speakers and activities. Over the past 30 years, thousands of girls’ lives have transformed at Camp Rising Sun. When CRS expanded its programming it also expanded to two campuses. As Camp has grown from Red Hook to Clinton we will symbolically make the same journey on July 20th. On Saturday morning we will start the day with breakfast at Red Hook. We will all walk the first mile together in solidarity and celebration of our growth. Then some runners, walkers, and cyclists will continue on the 7 miles to Clinton campus. Others will head to checkpoints to encourage runners, hand out water, and celebrate this journey our alums, family, and friends are taking with us. To join our runners, cyclists, and walkers in the full 7 mile journey you check the appropriate box when registering. Anyone can participate in the run or sponsor a runner or a running team.
