Quality Living Programs All Through The Year
At CAMP Rehoboth, the Health and Wellness programs cover more than HIV prevention, education & testing—they cover a full gamut of health programs to help the community live full and productive lives. Wellness programs focus on preventive and positive care, improving socialization, and support. All Health and Wellness programs are organized by Sal Seeley, many require registration, many are free, and all are presented by thoughtful experts in their fields.
Here is a round-up of programs available through CAMP Rehoboth this Fall.
Parents of Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Children
CAMP Rehoboth, last Tuesday of each month. September 25 at 6 p.m.
Parents will be able to network with other families who are going through similar experiences while raising a transgender or gender non-conforming child. The goal of the group is to provide parents a safe space where they can discuss issues which are important to them. They can raise questions, share resources, network, and listen to the experiences of other parents whose children are gender diverse. Issues explored include school, legal matters, privacy, siblings, extended family, and medical issues. For more information, please contact Salvatore Seeley at CAMP Rehoboth (302-227-5620).
