PENQUIS - Camp Ray of Hope is accepting registrations for the fall session (September 19-21). Camp Ray of Hope is an annual retreat held at Camp Mechuwana in Winthrop for Maine families and individuals who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives.
Attendees are given opportunities to network with other people from throughout the state of Maine who are also in the midst of transition from loss by death. Children and adults participate with their peers in support groups, workshops that encourage healthy outlets and self care. Campers can also fish, canoe and enjoy surroundings that are peaceful and unspoiled. Massage Therapists, Reiki Practitioners, Reflexologists, Manicurists and other complementary care providers donate sessions to campers of all ages.
Camp Ray of Hope was first offered by Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area in 1995 and continues to be the only one of its kind in Maine. Applicants from throughout the state are considered. Cost is $60.00 per person or $180.00 for a family of three or more. Pine Tree Hospice has scholarships available and donations for scholarships are gratefully accepted.
