Rising Appalachia

Our Mission

Through education, demonstration, and community exchange, Rising Appalachia supports a regional culture based on sustainable natural resources providing for economic activity, collective needs, and individual health and enjoyment.

What We Do

Rising Appalachia became a 501(c)(3) non profit in 2016 with the purpose of providing charitable community services for Athens and surrounding counties. It currently operates a summer day camp and hosts festivals, events, and workshops with a focus on the environment and sustainability.

Rising Appalachia has grown significantly since its incorporation, and hopes to continue to do so in 2018. Expect new offerings to come soon including:

  • Women of RAW: an all female week of camp geared towards empowering girls and young women
  • Parent's Nights Out providing childcare on weekends throughout the year
  • Rising Appalachia After School. While we are in the very beginning stages of planning, RA is looking into potentially offering after school programs throughout the year
  • Overnight camps and trips in Wayne National
