Camp Experiences

Camps are held in rural locations to provide youth with a unique and rewarding experience with other children from urban communities throughout the United States.

Dear RRR Youth, Families and Supporters-

We hope and pray that you and your families are well and in good health.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rescue, Release, and Restore Inc. has suspended all overnight camps for 2020. This includes SIMBA- Wisconsin and Ohio, SIMSA and MYLA. The decision to suspend all camps was not easy, but the safety and well-being of our youth and staff is our uttermost concern. Know that we WILL MISS YOU immensely. If you paid a deposit for 2020 camps, contact your local chapter/affiliate leaders for a refund.

RRR, Inc. plans to resume all camps, beginning June 2021. In the meantime, we will offer virtual activities to engage youth and camp leaders so that we stay connected in the absence of camp. If CDC guidelines permit, we will gather in February 2021 for our annual SIMBA-SIMSA Reunion Weekend and Gala in Chicago, Illinois.

Until then, we hope that you will join us for some fun in our virtual camp world. You can stay abreast of future events and activities through your local camp leaders and by visiting the Rescue, Release, Restore Facebook page and website.

In Community,
RRR Executive Board
