Letters at Delaware History Museum
For the first time, Delaware History Museum is commemorating LGBTQ history with a Pride window display at its location on 504 N. Market Street in Wilmington. The display will highlight CAMP Rehoboth Community Center as part of the integral queer Delaware history in both its timeline and by showcasing current and archival copies from 1992 and 1997 of Letters from CAMP Rehoboth. The display will be up and running not only through Pride Month, but throughout the summer. ▼

Pride Celebrations Help CAMP Rehoboth
Join CAMP Rehoboth every Thursday this month, 4-6 p.m., as Chesapeake & Maine/Dogfish Head Celebrates Pride with CAMP Rehoboth as the beneficiary.
CAMP Rehoboth is excited to be tapped as one of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s philanthropic Beer & Benevolence program beneficiaries. As part of their giveback to the coastal Delaware community through creative collaborations with nonprofit organizations, during Pride Month, CAMP Rehoboth will be the recipient of a campaign at their seafood and cocktail spot, Chesapeake & Maine, in downtown Rehoboth.
For the month of June, Chesapeake & Maine will feature a keg-conditioned “CAMP Cocktail” on its menu. For every CAMP Cocktail sold, $1 will be donated back to CAMP Rehoboth. Chesapeake & Maine will also host weekly happy hours throughout the month of June with 10 percent of the proceeds benefiting CAMP Rehoboth.

Streetlight Harmonies Available on Amazon Prime
Streetlight Harmonies, a 2020 documentary exploring the sounds and stories of doo-wop music, is now available on Amazon Prime and features a CAMP Rehoboth member. The documentary looks at the evolution of doo-wop and the influence it had not only on other musical genres but also the civil rights movement taking place at that time. The story is told through doo-wop groups like the Ink Spots, the Five Satins, and the Shirelles. Locals may be most interested in the story of the Chantels, as CAMP Rehoboth member Lois Harris Powell is a member of the Chantels and is featured in the documentary. Streetlight Harmonies is currently available for free on Amazon Prime and Vudu. The documentary can also be purchased in the Apple Store. ▼
