Next Step’s 2019 Summer Campference Season starts today!
Quita, Kepler and some of our amazing volunteers are packing up the U-Haul at our office in Cambridge, MA and getting ready to head out to the Warren Conference Center and Inn in Ashland, Massachusetts for our FREE residential Summer Campference for teens and young adults living with cancer.
Sorry Loki, your job requires you to stay at the Next Step office in Central Square.
Over the next four days, our Summer Campference attendees will join a unique community of young people who have had the same experiences due to their diagnosis. Our Summer Campference attendees will participate in educational workshops and have serious talks together where they will learn important life skills that will help them as they continue to transition to adulthood. They’ll also engage in one-on-one or group music therapy sessions and other expressive arts programs to help them find their voice and practice using it – whether it is at a doctor’s appointment, at a job or even in a new relationship. Oh…and we have A LOT of fun and share a lot of laughs! It is truly a life-changing four days of fun and learning!
Thank you so much to all of the amazing wonderful people with huge hearts who are giving up their free time this summer to support our residential Summer Campference program. We could not do this important work without your remarkable support!
