     Children with Incarcerated Parents*
     Camp Overlook is held every November in Harrisonburg, VA. This is a unique camp experience for children in grades 2-6 of incarcerated parents. The program focuses on self-esteem, conflict resolution, handling anger, and how to share feelings. Children are reassured that they are not responsible for the actions of their parents and should not feel ashamed. The camp is intended to help these children see ways to break patterns that may lead them into similar circumstances that their parent(s) are experiencing. There is a volunteer mentor for every 2 campers. All volunteers are screened and have completed background checks. They are committed to giving these children an uplifting weekend and will remain in mail contact throughout the school year. Almost everything that is needed (except clothing) will be provided. Mrs. Bartley will have applications available in the fall. This camp is not sponsored by or affiliated with Augusta County Public Schools.
     
    Grief Camp
    Camp Dragonfly* is a weekend camp held in September for children and teens ages 6-18 who have experienced the loss, by death, of a parent, sibling, grandparent, friend, or someone significant in their life. This camp is provided free of charge to campers. Mrs. Bartley has volunteered at Camp Dragonfly, and several of our students attend this camp each year.
