We know that you are ready to get outside and have some fun and so are we. That’s why we are so excited to announce that this summer we are going back to Northbay Adventure in North East, Maryland for Camp Lionheart and RISE Camp. It has been a tough couple years on everyone, especially our kids.
Summer camp is the perfect opportunity to provide children with a safe environment where they can connect with peers, feel free to play outdoors and just be kids. Summer camp helps develop resiliency by giving children the opportunity to build relationships and feel a sense of belonging. See below for how you can register your child for camp, sign up to be a counselor or chaperone, or make a donation to sponsor a camper’s trip!
Camp Lionheart is for children going INTO 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade in Fall 2022! Cabins are made up of 8 campers, 3 counselors and 1 adult chaperone. The kids will enjoy swimming, rock climbing, kayaking, an adventure swing, zip lining, hiking, beach campfires, ropes courses, relay races and so much more! Transportation is provided.

Camp Counselors are high school aged students, and interact directly and consistently with the campers. They participate in almost all of the events and activities with the campers throughout the week and focus on building special relationships with each camper! Camp counselors stay with the campers in their assigned for the week.
Chaperones must be 18+ years old and fully available August 7-11. Chaperones supervise the cabin they are assigned to – they are in charge of keeping schedules and maintaining structure within the cabin and amongst the campers. Camp Chaperones have the option to participate in activities with the campers and counselors or observe and monitor. Chaperones spend the week in their assigned cabin with campers and counselors.
There are plenty of supportive roles that adult volunteers can play at camp. These positions include dining staff and nurse! Our dining staff is responsible for table settings, bringing out family style or individually packed meals, beverage pitchers, and plated desserts. Once meals are finished, our kind dining staff return all serving pieces to the kitchen and clean and reset tables for the next meal.
Our Nurse position can be a nurse practitioner, nurse, doctor or EMT. You will be required to monitor and distribute all necessary and approved medications to campers, in addition to responding to any medical needs throughout the week.
Housing is provided for all adult volunteers in a gorgeous guest house for a nominal contribution. All meals are provided as well.
Camp is such an important way to continue building into the lives of children over the summer.
When you sponsor a child to attend camp, your gift fuels their progress through our programs. Students can return to camp year after year, building on everything they’ve learned before while growing in leadership and self-efficacy.
