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.
This year CAMP Rehoboth is celebrating our 23rd anniversary as a LGBT community service organization serving the Rehoboth Beach area. Twenty-two years ago we had a small office and published our first issue (only four pages long), of Letters from CAMP Rehoboth. Since that time we’ve grown into a full service community center, partnered with organizations all over the city and state, developed a network of support all across the mid-Atlantic region, and nurtured a long list of services, activities, events, and programs - and Letters from CAMP Rehoboth now runs anywhere from 88 to 120 pages an issue!
The logo for CAMP Rehoboth is a house with a heart in it. We’ve tried over these past twenty-two years to create a home, a real house with a heart, a place that welcomes everyone. Rehoboth Beach was originally developed as a Methodist Church campground and its name, a biblical one, loosely translates as “room for all.”
Today, CAMP Rehoboth continues to build a house with room for all, both literally – in our beautiful new CAMP Rehoboth courtyard and Community Center - and figuratively – in our many programs and activities.
