Emerge Youth Life Skills Camp is a weeklong day camp experience for children ages 10-14 focused on exposing youth to essential building blocks for life. Each Emerge Camp provides an in-depth introduction to life skills and experiences that are typically neglected within traditional classroom environments. Elizabeth Beisel and her team have curated lessons around safety training (CPR, First Aid), water safety/drowning prevention, self-confidence, yoga and meditation, mental health and wellness, physical activity, interactive team building, and re-wilding in nature.
Each day camp session is hosted at a City of Warwick location, conveniently and centrally located in Rhode Island. Pool days will be held at McDermott Pool, Education Center Days will be hosted at The Event Factory, and the final Re-Wilding Day will be hosted at Rocky Point State Park. Families are responsible for transporting their child/children to and from camp each day. Camp begins at 9am and ends at 3pm daily.

What To Expect
Campers will be introduced to a variety of life skills which will empower them to believe in themselves and act accordingly in real world scenarios. This includes anything from lifesaving tips in the water and nature to workshops on building self-confidence and leadership skills. These physical and mental lessons will allow our youth to respond to situations calmly and expose them to the beautiful impact they can have on our world. Having fun and educating our youth is at the core of what we do at Emerge, and we hope to leave each camper happier, more confident, and better equipped to take on anything life throws their way. Our youth is our future, and we fully believe in investing in them.

One camper who has learned these skills adds safety to their friend groups, family or school mates in any situation because they have been taught, understand and have practiced how to best take action in a situation needing CPR or first aid, water safety or calm clear decision making.
