Raising the Pride Flag
Early morning on June 6, the City of Rehoboth Beach officially raised the Pride flag to recognize June as Pride month, inviting CAMP Rehoboth for the occasion. Pride month sets out to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and its visibility, and CAMP Rehoboth is proud to be part of a city that recognizes the vitality of that. ▼

Thank you, Local Businesses For Showing Pride
Several businesses and local establishments have shown and are continuing to show Pride this month by giving back and generously donating to CAMP Rehoboth from fundraisers throughout June.
To start, Dogfish Head celebrates each Thursday with Pride Happy Hours featuring a specialty cocktail for CAMP Rehoboth. Meanwhile, on Friday, June 3, Bin 66 Beer, Wine and Spirits auctioned off two Pinhook private barrels and generously donated all proceeds to CAMP Rehoboth. Plus, drag shows at Big Chill Surf Cantina (through July 5, from 8:00-10:00 p.m.) and Northbeach Nightclub in Dewey (each Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. through the end of August) are charging covers to benefit CAMP Rehoboth’s free programming. Thank you, local businesses, establishments, and performers, for supporting CAMP Rehoboth! ▼
Delaware Pride Celebrates 25 Years
On June 4, attendees celebrated the 25th anniversary of Delaware Pride in Dover. CAMP Rehoboth had a presence both in the parade (big thanks to i.g. Burton for three Jeeps!) and at a table in Legislative Mall. The day featured family-friendly entertainment and offered the community the chance to come together, promote LGBTQ+ visibility, and celebrate attendees’ authentic identities.
Those representing CAMP Rehoboth included Aura DuBoyz, CAMpsafe’s Amber Lee, Kassey Gonzalez-Crus, Tamia Mykles, and Jay Xavier Johnson. ▼
Block Party Sets the Date
The CAMP Rehoboth Block Party will take to the streets Sunday, October 16, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For three years, the Block Party has been canceled due to inclement weather and the COVID-19 pandemic. Sorely missed, anticipation is high for the event’s return, and the Block Party committee is already hard at work to ensure that this year’s festivities are a triumph.
Are you a vendor, artist, or business interested in exhibiting at the Block Party? Or, are you interested in sponsoring this blockbuster event? Stay tuned to camprehoboth.com for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org. ▼
CROP at the Concert
After a forced hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, the CAMP Rehoboth Chorus returned in a big way on May 13, 14, and 15 with three dynamite performances! And 15 CAMP Rehoboth Outreach Program (CROP) ushers (five each night) were there once again to assist.
The ushers had their own great performance handling at-the-door ticket sales, assisting audience members, collecting for Ukraine relief, and selling water at intermission. Oh, and looking too cute in their vests and bow ties! Many chorus members expressed their appreciation for CROP’s support.
CROP and our ushers congratulate the CAMP Rehoboth Chorus on a triumphant return! ▼
