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.
