GSAs Grow in Numbers; Offer Speakers
Thanks to Barbara Antlitz, CAMP Rehoboth’s Youth Coordinator, students at Sussex Central, Milford, and Lake Forest High Schools had the opportunity to engage in courageous conversations dealing with transgender issues and the importance of promoting safe school environments for students. Students were able to participate in an open dialogue about genderexpansive issues in a safe environment.▼

Women’s FEST Is on the Way!
How do I buy a FEST pass?
The key to the April 29-May 3 Women’s FEST 2020 is the FEST Pass. It will be sold at just $125 for a gigantic $190 value. A FEST Pass guarantees attendees a seat at all three headliner shows (Indigo Girls, Chely Wright, Funny Girlz), special events, keynote speakers, early headliner seating, a long-sleeved FEST t-shirt designed by artist Geri Dibiase, and much more. Tickets will go on sale mid-February at camprehoboth.com. If available, individual concert tickets will go on sale in early April. The FEST Pass is the way to go. Look for an announcement of early sales for CAMP Rehoboth members, and we will let you know the minute FEST Passes are on sale. This is the 20th Anniversary of Women’s FEST and it is going to rock! ▼
