Rape Crisis Center hosts free summer camp for young girls, teens

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) -

Awareness and responsibility -- those are some of the things the Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal Empire hopes to achieve with their new summer programs.  These summer youth programs are geared towards empowerment and sexual assault prevention education. 
The center will host Camp Thrive for girls in the Coastal Empire, ages 10-13, on July 2-6. And another camp for ages 14-17 will take place July 9-12. The Rape Crisis Center says these programs help to address the root of a problem that is often unaddressed. The camp is free and lunch is provided. 
Some of the topics covered include self-esteem, coping skills and cyber safety. 
Camp Thrive will be held at the Botanical Gardens on Eisenhower Drive in Savannah. 
For more information or to register, call 912-233-3000 or go to  www.rccsav.org, or email counselor@rccsav.org or prevention@rccsav.org.

The Rape Crisis Center is a local non-profit program that works to provide resources, advocacy, prevention activity and education to victims of sexual assault and their families. In addition, the organization is also responsible for anti-bullying projects, good touch/bad touch, and bystander intervention programs in local schools and colleges.
