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.

Everyone Knew Steve Elkins
Everyone in Rehoboth Knew Steve Elkins. The governor called as he lay dying. Senators, too, stopped to pay respects. And respect. Steve would have loved that, because he loved government and the art and skill it took to get things done. He worked in Jimmy Carter’s White House, for Pete’s sake, and the halls of the Delaware Statehouse.
