HUGS Camp
Helper Camper applications due by May 15
Info & Registration: http://www.dionc.org/Youth/hugs-camp.html
HUGS is a unique camp for unique people that brings together young people of diverse abilities. It is run by The Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina at The Summit in Haw River State Park. Each camper with special needs has a helper camper who makes sure they have a safe, fun, God-filled week of summer camp. Helper campers (age 14+) take part in a day of training with counselors and nurses to learn how to care for the campers. Staff positions are available for those 18 and older. Our very own Rev. Meg Buerkel-Hunn is the camp chaplain and will be there all week! If you have any questions feel free to reach out to her at mhunn@ccral.org.
