Since 2013, Fellowship Place has offered our clients the opportunity to take a summer vacation to the Salvation Army’s Camp CONNRI in Ashford, CT. For many of our clients, this trip is their first vacation ever. At camp, they enjoy fresh air and the natural beauty of a rural setting. Most importantly, they enjoy the opportunity to try new activities like kayaking, archery, hiking, and swimming. By going outside his/her normal comfort zone, each camper builds confidence and the courage to try other new things once back at home. This is all a part of each client’s personal recovery journey. Campers always come home refreshed and revitalized and with lots of wonderful memories to share with friends and family. Special thanks to The Salvation Army for hosting this lost cost trip and to donors for the Birgitta Johnson Campership Fund, which underwrites the cost of the trip for some of the campers.
