RISING STAR SUMMER CAMPS
HELD AT WAGGENER HIGH SCHOOL
Remember the fun of summer when you were a kid? Exploring the outdoors, spending time with friends, playing games and splashing in the pool? At Rising Star, we create an exciting, safe environment for kids to have an unforgettable summer of fun. And while they’re taking part in unique experiences and adventures, they’re building self-esteem, developing interpersonal skills and making lasting friendships and memories.
Our staff are also all CPR and First Aid certified and attend over 40 hours each of additional training to keep all campers safe.
