Winnie Stuempfle, one of our counselors, is organizing this year’s Teen Retreat. She is doing a project on camp programming for adolescents affected by childhood cancer. Please come join us for some hangout time and fun with photos, food, and friends old and new!
This year’s Teen Retreat will involve decorating t-shirts, an outdoor photo scavenger hunt, a pizza party, and s’mores by the campfire! This retreat is for our campers who have or have had cancer and their siblings, are ages 13-18, and speak English. Come join us for fun with photos, food, and friends!
We will be asking that all participants fill out surveys before the program, immediately after the program, and 4 weeks after the program to collect information about what they liked about the program, how it helped them, and what they want to see in the future. However, participation in survey completion is not required for participants to take part in the Teen Retreat. All survey responses will be kept anonymous. The information will be used to improve Arizona Camp Sunrise and Sidekicks programming and may be published to educate other camps about the benefit of camp services on adolescents affected by childhood cancer.
