What is Camp Noah?
Camp Noah is a nationally acclaimed program where children in communities impacted by disaster can experience the power of hope and healing through a proven resiliency curriculum that includes creative activities and play. While Camp Noah usually takes place over five days, its impact on a child can last a lifetime.
Why Camp Noah?
Because disaster changes lives —
Especially for children. Whatever type of disaster or trauma they have experienced, children often need support to process what has happened.
A study published by the American Academy of Pediatrics titled The Psychosocial Implications of Disaster or Terrorism on Children states, “If children are helped to learn to cope with this stress, their symptoms subside. We can help our children live with this fear, adjust to it, and plan for the future rather than remain paralyzed in fear” (2005).
Camp Noah collaborates with local community partners to customize the programming to create specific approaches to non-natural disasters.
How Camp Noah Helps Children
During Camp Noah, a team of certified camp staff accompany campers through a proven resiliency building curriculum that enables children to process their disaster and trauma experiences. Each camp is customized to the local community and offers children a safe space to tell their stories and build the resiliency skills they need to move forward.
