Eat, Sleep, Exercise, Connect
CAMP Rehoboth’s health and wellness programming is intended to provide information, activities, and skill building. Our hope is that those who engage with our programs will integrate what is learned to improve their overall well-being.
The eight dimensions of well-being are: emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual, environmental, physical, occupational, and financial. As we develop programs and services to address these eight dimensions it is important to understand that there are intersections within, between, and among our four pillars of CAMP Rehoboth. For example, the arts and culture programs also provide opportunities to support our emotional well-being. Supporting the health and wellness of CAMP Rehoboth’s community is an essential part of our mission.
All of our programs, services, and events are listed on the CAMP Rehoboth website: camprehoboth.com/health. We encourage everyone to visit this site to ensure they have up-to-date information on what is being offered—and when.
This November, December, and January we are offering Wellness Wednesday workshops to include:
Nutrition Series: The upcoming workshops in this series—“Food Labels: What’s in Your Pantry,” on December 6, with Steuart Martens, and “Kicking the Sugar Habit,” on January 3, with Tom Chaplin—will help participants understand how to be better consumers as they read food labels and consider the impact of sugar on health.
Sleep and Stress Series: “How to Promote Sleep,” the second in this two-part series led by Steuart Martens, speaks to the importance of rest.
Boardwalk and Talk: We’re offering an outdoor opportunity for movement + conversation, with a group that walks together at noon each Wednesday.
Additionally, we are currently offering free mindfulness and movement programs, including yoga and tai chi. Our men’s yoga class meets in-person and offers an opportunity for personal connection after class. Tai Chi is also an in-person class at CAMP Rehoboth. Our current Zoom classes are Mindfulness and both Chair Yoga and Over 50 Yoga.
Social well-being cannot be overlooked. Being socially connected is crucial to our emotional and physical health; CAMP Rehoboth’s programs offer many opportunities to meet and connect with others. These include:
• CAMP Rehoboth Book Club—November selection: The Bell in the Fog, an historical mystery by Lev AC Rosen, recently featured in the Lewes History Book Festival
• Flaming Knitters
• Women in Circle
• Bereavement Group—a new program, offered in partnership with Delaware Hospice
Additionally, many of our volunteers report that simply volunteering with CAMP Rehoboth is a great way to meet new friends.
We continue to develop our programs to meet the health and well-being needs of the LGBTQ+ community. Our partnerships with other agencies and professionals continue to expand. And, we are always open for suggestions and feedback.

It’s All About Prevention!
FREE Condoms—Protect Yourself!
FREE condoms (internal, external, and non-latex) and dental dams are ALWAYS available at CAMP Rehoboth and many other locations, including: Diego’s, Northbeach, Lighthouse, Freddie’s, and Aqua.
Mpox: YOU can stop the spread!
Mpox can spread through skin-to-skin contact with a person with mpox, or contact with their saliva, upper respiratory secretions, and areas around the genitals. Find the latest information on mpox and where to get your vaccines at cdc.gov/poxvirus/mpox.
PrEP, HIV PEP, and mpox PEP
What is the difference among these? PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a medication taken on a daily basis that can reduce your chance of getting HIV. HIV PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is a medication that must be taken within 72 hours after possible exposure to prevent HIV. Mpox PEP reduces your chances of getting mpox after possible exposure to the mpox virus. To find out more, visit cdc.gov/hiv.
