In Memory of Steve Elkins
The CAMP Rehoboth family is heartbroken at the passing of our Executive Director and co-founder, Steve Elkins.
As he did throughout his life, fighting for the rights of so many in this state, he fought lymphoma with courage and dignity until the very end.
For over 25 years as its Executive Director, Steve’s leadership and vision has allowed CAMP Rehoboth to become one of the most respected and successful non-profit organizations in Delaware, and has contributed greatly to establishing Rehoboth as a widely recognized community with “room for all.”
We extend our heartfelt condolences to his husband, Murray Archibald, and their family. Steve’s passing is a tremendous loss to them, to CAMP Rehoboth, and to the entire community.
A Memorial Service in Steve’s memory will be held on Monday, April 9, at 11:00 am at
Epworth United Methodist Church
19825 Holland Glade Road
Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

Welcome to CAMP Rehoboth! Celebrating diversity, building a strong sense of community, and “creating a more positive” environment for all people, gay and straight, has always been at the heart of the CAMP Rehoboth philosophy.
Letters Current Issue
The Way I See it
This is the first issue of season 28 of Letters from CAMP Rehoboth, and though very little about this winter has been business as usual as I continue to fight as hard as I can against the lymphoma that has tried to slow me down, I am happy to welcome this new year—and looking forward to a better year for me, and another great year for CAMP Rehoboth. Both Murray and I have been deeply touched by the outpouring of support from our community, and we thank everyone for the prayers and cards and green ribbons.
This is My Husband
The last time I remember anything resembling a normal day was Sundance this past Labor Day weekend, though even then my husband Steve was already exhibiting symptoms that two days later would be diagnosed as an aggressive transformation of his heretofore mild lymphoma.
In Brief - News and Notes
CAMP Chorus, Bluefish Cove, Women's FEST, and even a Prom!
Those of us who are “transplants” from the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area (self included) can easily spot our fellow “Philladelfyans” by virtue of our speech. Whenever I hear someone ask for a glass of “wudder,” or talk about shopping at the “Acka-me”, I feel right at home. When you meet Jo Ketler, owner of Murph’s Beef and Ale, ask for your cheesesteak “wit” and she’ll know how to make it!
