Camp Rebuilding Hope In New Orleans (Camp RHINO) is a work-hard, play-hard week of serving Christ in the Crescent City!

At Camp RHINO, campers and their leaders will experience a week of intense urban mission, exposing the needs of New Orleans while being a part of rebuilding it.

“Camp RHINO is very organized, well run, and ministers to us a well as coordinating work schedules. It was a wonderful surprise!” – leader, Cody, WY

“The whole experience felt powerful. I felt like I had a purpose.” – youth
“The staff was fantastic and responsive, communication was great, dinners were delicious, and the worship connected with our youth.” – leader, Florida

“I had SO MUCH FUN during Camp RHINO. I learned so much, and felt like I made a difference. It was overall one of the best experiences of my life!” – camper, Texas

“This program is exceptionally well organized and meaningful. It also remindes us that ministry, when done well, can be interesting and fun as well as life-changing.” – Rev. Dr. Michael Jinkins

“This has been a fantastic experience. From the worksite to the RHINO staff, each moment has been valuable. I’ll recommend RHINO to other congregations wherever I’ll go.” – leader

We hope you consider joining us for a week of service and fun next summer!

Summer 2024 will mark the twelfth year of Camp RHINO.
During a typical camp day, leaders and campers work on Camp RHINO ministry sites alongside our RHINO staff, getting a real look at the diverse needs of New Orleans.
