Founded in 1991 to Create A More Positive (CAMP) Rehoboth with room for all, today CAMP Rehoboth is a well-respected institution in Rehoboth Beach and local communities. We bring needed support and services to all citizens through our long-term connections and partners in the larger community. We also offer fun-filled events for residents and vacationers as well. How is all this achieved? Many volunteers work in countless ways, both big and small, to accomplish this mission and have fun too! Sign up today to join our volunteer team. We need you!
CAMP Rehoboth is fortunate to have many volunteers who want to help with urgent needs related COVID-19.
Opportunities to help with critical needs and organizations that are providing important services are described below. All of these will be conducted using social distancing and best practices. Thank you for considering ways that you can help!
CAMP Mask Makers – Facemasks are urgently needed by community organizations, and volunteers can help make them. Carol Lazzara, who has already been making masks, will provide interested CROP volunteers with instructions and best practices as well and a list of community organizations that need them. CROP volunteers can also help with picking up and delivery. Email email@example.com if you can help.
Immanuel Shelter – The shelter has remained open to serve the vulnerable homeless population. They need drivers to pick up meals in Rehoboth and deliver them to the two hotels located in Rehoboth and Lewes. Drivers are also needed to pick up breakfast and lunch for children at H.O. Brittingham Elementary School in Milton and deliver them to the hotels. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
CAMP Collection Sites – During the week of April 20, CAMP Rehoboth will have local collection sites to collect items that will be delivered to the Food Bank of Delaware and local healthcare providers.
The Food Bank has had an increase in demand and needs canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, pasta and jarred sauce, canned meats (tuna fish, chicken), rice, hot and cold cereal, healthy snacks like granola bars and raisins, and 100% fruit and vegetable juice. Local healthcare providers are in urgent need of hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, nitrile gloves, Tyvek suits, N95 face masks, face shields, eye protection, and impermeable gowns.
CROP: CAMP Rehoboth Outreach Program
The CAMP Rehoboth Outreach Program (CROP) is constantly working to cultivate community and strengthen relationships and the connection between us all. For information on upcoming CROPportunities, email email@example.com.
Rainbow Thumb Club
Can you spare an hour once a week? Then join our Rainbow Thumb Club and help keep our courtyard beautiful! The tasks are simple; water, weed and tidy the area. This year we are hoping to have enough volunteers to have 2 gardeners working together each day. This gives you the opportunity to both socialize and enjoy the fruits of your labor. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAMP Rehoboth is looking for people-oriented individuals to volunteer as a CAMPcierge to support the daily operations of the CAMP office. CAMPcierges are the “first faces” for people visiting or contacting CAMP, and duties include welcoming visitors, answering the phone and fielding questions in support of the CAMP staff. Generally, CAMPcierges work one or two shifts a week (Morning: 9 - noon or Afternoon: noon - 3), and there is also a need for folks to fill in occasionally during busy times or when a regular volunteer is unavailable. CAMPcierges are needed for some shifts during the week, for Saturday shifts and, during the summer, for Sunday shift. For more information, e-mail email@example.com.
