The Birgitta Johnson Campership Fund at Fellowship Place awarded six camperships at its annual awards ceremony on May 24. Winners receive a free trip to the Salvation Army’s Camp CONNRI, an adult retreat center in Ashford, CT.

To be considered for a campership, individuals must submit a piece of art or an essay describing why they need a summer getaway from city life. Winners are selected by the Fellowship Place Board of Directors. The Campership Fund is named in honor of former Board President, the late Birgitta Johnson, who loved to travel. Birgitta was dedicated to giving the individuals served at Fellowship Place the opportunity for new & enriching experiences.
