Teaching children resiliency skills following Hurricane Harvey

“When things are tough, I learn a lot, about who I am and what I’ve got.”

This sentiment was shared with a group of Orange, Texas, children during Camp Noah – a preparedness and resiliency day camp offered to elementary age children in communities impacted by a disaster or crisis. Following Hurricane Harvey, Rebuild Texas Fund has supported 20 Camp Noah camps in the affected Texas communities.

Camp Noah aims to teach children who have experienced tragedies like Hurricane Harvey how to process their feelings. Through a week-long arts, crafts and music program, the children are able to process how they feel and learn skills toward resiliency.
