Summer Strong Camp – Avalon

Avalon’s Summer Strong summer camp for children that are victims or witnesses of crime will be hosted this July. This is a trauma-informed camp and we are offering two sessions (July 8-12 and July 22 -26). The camp is FREE and space is limited to 12 campers per session. Space is given on a first come, first served basis and the deadline is June 1st. Summer Strong camp activities will be conducted in Williamsburg, VA.

The summer day camp offers youth the opportunity to develop coping skills and build resilience by participating in group activities with peers designed to address the emotional needs of youth that witnessed or are victims of crime. The one week camp will promote safety and safer behaviors. Campers will participate in fun, engaging and adventurous activities to build confidence! They will also develop emotional and physical safety plans.
