Children, aged 7-16, congregate in this wonderful haven where they take a break from the challenging lives they face at such young ages. We provide therapy through FUN. Our campers take part in a balanced program that includes, physical activity, healthy eating, creative arts, developing coping strategies, self-esteem boosting, relationship building, and relaxation.

They will ensure the camp is following all regulations for food safety as set out by the Department of Environmental Health. They will oversee all of the kitchen volunteers and direct them as appropriate. Room and board provided.
