Thrive Thursdays

Every Second Thursday of the Month

4-5pm All Ages


Every second Thursday of the month Rising Appalachia will be headed to the Chauncey Public Library for Thrive Thursday. We'll be hosting an hour of fun and games, educational workshops, crafts, and more in the form of child and family friendly activities.

A Night on the Farm

April 26, 2019

Ages 12 and Up 6pm - 9am overnight


Registration uses our trips and expeditions form to ensure we have the information needed to provide for your child safely overnight.

Much like our Parent's Night Out, but overnight. A Night on the Farm will take our 12 and up campers for evening of fun and games followed by bonfires, s'mores, story telling and other night time activities. There will be owl calls, star gazing, and some old fashioned capture the flag in the dark. We'll be bringing out the Trips and Expeditions gear for an introduction to pitching your own tent, cooking your own meals, and falling asleep to the sounds of nature. Dinner and breakfast provided. All your child will need is essentials like toothpaste and a sleeping bag and pillow.

Hocking River Cleanup

May 11, 2019

Families and Individuals Welcome


As we prepare to make use of the Hocking River as part of Rising Appalachia programs, we invite the community to help us clean it up. We will provide canoes and trash bags, and enjoy a paddle down the Hocking picking up refuse along the way.

Benefit for the Biancos

May 16, 2019

6pm - 9pm At Stuarts Opera House

Families and Individuals Welcome


The Bianco family has been with Rising Appalachia for a long time. Unfortunately, Andrew Bianco, their son is unwell after a cancer diagnosis at the beginning of summer 2018. Despite that hardship, Andrew and his family have shown us and the community at large what it means to be vibrant and living life to its fullest. The Benefit for the Biancos is a community dinner and silent auction we're holding to celebrate Andrew and his family and all that they bring to our small corner of Ohio. If you would like to come out, please RSVP via our facebook event page so we know how many guests to expect. We'll see you there.
