Camp Get – A- Way and family connection.

By February 10, 2022April 6th, 20225 Comments
Life hardly ever feels “normal” when you have a child struggling with an emotional, behavioral, or mental illness. It’s often lonely and discouraging, even more after years with disrupted schooling and less in-person support.  

 

Camp Get-A-Way exists to create a safe camp experience where families can just be themselves. We offer the opportunity to rediscover the joy of being a family in a traditional camp setting, without worry of discrimination or the stigma often associated with mental health issues. It’s a place where you and your kids can play, connect, create, and bond in the great outdoors. Try new things like archery, swimming, fishing, and canoeing as a family. Share laughter and s’mores by the campfire. Create memories over tie-dye, camp crafts, and games. Find hope through the family resources and training. And start lasting friendships with others facing similar challenges.

 

Camp Get-A-Way Sessions are:

Spring: May 6-8 2022 at Hidden Valley Camp in Watkins Glen

Summer: August 22-25 at Camp Bristol Hills in Canandaigua

Fall I: September 16-18 at Camp Shankitunk in Delhi

There is a possibility of a second Fall session October 7-10 at Camp Wyomoco in Orangeville if there is enough interest.

In  Celebration of our 20th Anniversary, families only need to pay a $20 registration fee!!
