CHAP Health and Wellness Camp
The CHAP camp is a camp for youth ages 12-14 who have experienced abuse, neglect and or trauma in their lives. The objective of the camp is to children the tools to assist them in all areas of their lives, and to have FUN while doing it. CHAP Health and Wellness Camp is not your traditional camp with dodgeball and swimming, but instead provides an experience to give children the tools to assist them in all areas of their lives including but not limited to managing frustration, working as part of a team, negotiation skills, effective communication, self-awareness, and conflict resolution.
CAMP focuses on providing youth with tools to address mind and body, as research shows strong evidence of interconnectedness between our physical and mental health. Each day the camp is broken up into various activities. These activities include karate, physical fitness training and conditioning as part of karate, yoga and meditation, equine therapy, art therapy, music therapy, cooking classes, robotics workshops, and trips to the RVCC Planetarium and Grounds for Sculpture.
