Time to Re-Member
It’s that kind of September, when it’s time to re-member! If you’re currently a member of CAMP Rehoboth—YAY, YOU! If you were a member at some point in the past, then it’s time to consider becoming a “re-member.” And if you’ve never been a member, then it’s just high time you shared all those $$$ you’ve saved in gas since March.
Your membership helps support not only the facility, but also (and I’m listing the arts-related programs first!) the CAMP Rehoboth Chorus, CAMP Rehoboth Gallery, Letters from CAMP Rehoboth, Diversity Training, Advocacy for State and Local Issues, Support for GSAs (Gender & Sexuality Alliances or other use of the GSA letters), Senior Needs Assessment, Sexual Health Counseling, HIV and STI testing, Flu Shots, Support Groups, Grief Counseling, dozens of outreach programs and discussion groups, and events we’ve all come to love: Women’s FEST, the Baltimore Avenue Block Party, Sundance.… I’ve been affiliated with CAMP since 1999, and CAMP Rehoboth has been an essential part of my life ever since. Supporting CAMP Rehoboth is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your community. All locations listed below are in Rehoboth Beach unless otherwise noted.
The Bear Necessities
CAMP Rehoboth Gallery hosts Bear Necessities: celebrating the bear/cub community and featuring paintings, photographs, and multimedia works for display and sale—through September 30. Small groups can stop by to view the exhibit Tuesdays & Fridays (10 a.m.-1 p.m.) or make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

To Infinity and Beyond…
The CAMP Rehoboth Arts Team—consisting of Leslie Sinclair, Jane Knaus, Patricia Stiles, Anita Broccolino, and Kerry Hallet—is creating quite a buzz as they plan the rest of 2020 and 2021 season. In addition to supporting local artists, the focus is on introducing new topics and themes for group shows, working towards equity and inclusion in our artist representation, and creating virtual galleries of CAMP Rehoboth’s exhibitions to ensure arts access for those who can’t visit the gallery in person. Stay tuned!
