Summer Camp – Camp STAR
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel this year’s Camp STAR. The health and safety of campers and volunteers is a top priority, and we in no way want to jeopardize this. This decision was made by the STAR Children’s Bereavement Services Board of Directors in consultation with the Camp Planning Committee and representatives from Bay Cliff Health Camp, which advised us that the summer health camp has also been cancelled in light of the same safety concerns.
In reaching this decision, we are mindful that our campers continue to need support, and that the ongoing uncertainty in our communities may present new or different challenges for grieving children. The Board of Directors and the Outreach Committee are exploring virtual support opportunities, and will revisit on a monthly basis how to serve the needs of former and prospective campers. Our ultimate goal is to host some form of modified or abbreviated Camp STAR weekend in the fall or winter season of 2020-21.
