CEN­TRE­VILLE — Com­pass Re­gional Hospice will re­turn Thurs­day, June 22, to the pa­tio of Fish­er­man’s Crab Deck in Grasonville to host a fundraiser for Camp New Dawn. The event be­gins at 5 p.m. and con­tin­ues through 8 p.m. Every­one is wel­come, and ad­mis­sion is free.

Camp New Dawn, an an­nual pro­gram of the Com­pass Re­gional Hospice Hope and Healing Cen­ter, is a three­day, two-night re­treat for griev­ing chil­dren, teens and fam­i­lies held each sum­mer at Camp Pe­cometh in Cen­tre­ville. The camp serves chil­dren be­tween the ages of 4 and 17, and their fam­i­lies.

Camp will kick off at 12:30 p.m. Sat­ur­day, Aug. 19, when campers ages 7 to 17 will ar­rive at Camp Pe­cometh. The campers will play and work to­gether un­til the clos­ing cel­e­bra­tion at 4:30 p.m. Mon­day, Aug. 21. A day camp for chil­dren ages 4 to 6 will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mon­day, Aug. 21.

The Camp New Dawn adult re­treat will be­gin at 4 p.m. Sun­day, Aug. 20, when par­ents of campers ar­rive for an overnight ses­sion with other adults. While the campers are busy learn­ing how to cope with their grief, the adult re­treat helps re­store par­tic­i­pants to a place of whole­ness as they learn to nav­i­gate their own grief jour­ney.

At the end of the week­end, the adults and chil­dren come to­gether at fam­ily camp to learn skills they can take home with them, which will help them rely on one an­other as they heal. Fam­ily camp ends at 7 p.m. Tues­day, Aug. 22.

The cost of Camp New Dawn is $30 for each child or teen, and $75 for each fam­ily. No one is ever turned away due to in­abil­ity to pay. Th­ese reg­is­tra­tion fees rep­re­sent only a frac­tion of the ac­tual cost of op­er­at­ing Camp New Dawn. Com­pass Re­gional Hospice re­lies on com­mu­nity do­na­tions, fundrais­ers and grants to cover camp ex­penses so any­one who needs to at­tend may par­tic­i­pate.

“Sup­port from the com­mu­nity has been phe­nom­e­nal, year af­ter year, and we look for­ward to a big turnout at Fish­er­man’s Crab Deck on June 22,” said Rhonda Knotts, di­rec­tor of Camp New Dawn.
