Camp Caritas seeks assistance


Camp Caritas provides a nurturing camping experience and a supportive environment for children whose parents are in prison.

For the past two years, 20-25 boys and girls between the ages of 9-11 years old have attended a weeklong camp at Duncan Gray Episcopal Conference/Camp Center north of Canton. The goal is for each child to be paired with a trained mentor who will follow that child after camp ends.

This is an ecumenical ministry. Camp Caritas will be held June 25-30.
