The Youth Rally

Each year, the Youth Rally hosts kids and teens living with conditions of the bowel and bladder at a college campus for a 5-night one of a kind camp experience that promotes independence, self-esteem, learning, friendship, and FUN!

SPONSORSHIP is available for ALL CAMPERS in need!

Thanks to the generous efforts of Youth Rally volunteers, donors, and partners, in over 30 years of existence no child has ever been turned away due to lack of financial resources. The sponsorship application form is embedded in the camper application. Simply complete the application and state your need as prompted for registration ($425) and/or travel (variable) assistance. No coupon code required.

Those requesting sponsorship for travel costs should complete their application as soon as possible to avoid costly, last-minute flight arrangements. Those who receive sponsorship for travel costs will be required to book airfare through the Youth Rally travel agent - contact information to be provided with notification of application acceptance.

Note: all applicants are subject to a $75 application fee. This helps the Youth Rally better plan for program and housing purposes.  If for some reason you absolutely cannot afford this payment please contact Emily Mallar.

HOW TO DO SOME FUNDRAISING ON YOUR OWN - The Youth Rally strongly encourages all participants to do some bit of fundraising on their own. There are many local/regional charities (Kiwanis, Rotary, church groups, WOCN affiliates, Hospitals, UOAA affilliates, etc.) that set aside funds for this very thing.

Many campers and volunteers have additional success through personal fundraising sites. The Youth Rally is already establised with FirstGiving. Click here to create your own grassroots fundraising page with FirstGiving today! Just set up your page, tell your story, and share it with family and friends. Funds raised will be put towards your registration/travel balance. Any funds raised above your own registration/travel costs will go to support another camper in need.
