Round Table Discussion at Therapy West: Is Your Child Safe on Social Media?

Childcare is at the forefront of everything we do at Camps Equinunk and Blue Ridge. During the summer, we have created an “unplugged environment” so our campers can focus on relationships and the outdoors. We realize replicating this at home is much more challenging.

The following event was sent to us by CBR Alum Ali Hamroff who is one of the organizers. While this event is not organized by CECBR we know how relevant the topic of Social Media is in today’s day and age. We wanted to forward details on to our camp families:

What Thursday Evening Is All About

As I sit down at my desk and prepare for a busy week I wanted to take a moment to reflect on why our event on Thursday evening is taking place.

Camps Equinunk and Blue Ridge is more than just a summer camp. We are a community filled with caring, compassionate, and loving people who believe in the values that make our camp family so special.

#WELIVEFORTHIS, A Night of Giving Back is not about us. It’s about three deserving youth-based organizations who are improving the lives of children, and one message.

Before the summer of 2013, two Equinunk campers approached Adam and me with an idea for a run to support a cause they cared deeply about – The Wounded Warrior Project.

Amazed with their excitement and desire to give back we embraced it and “The Fun Run” has become a CECBR Tradition that our campers look forward to. Through their participation in the run we give back to those who have given up so much to defend our freedom around the world.

After announcing our Night of Giving Back, we were once again approached by a Blue Ridge Camper who was inspired and wanted to find an opportunity for CECBR campers to also give back. CECBR Spins was born and is 100% camper-run.

It’s moments like these – that sparked our Night of Giving Back.

We have such a tremendous platform, as a camp for children to embrace and promote the act of paying it forward. Lets hope that Thursday evening, along with The Wounded Warrior Run at camp and CECBR Spins can inspire more ideas like them from campers in our community and beyond.

Camp is all about building a better self. Why not build a brighter future too.

We hope to see you on Thursday March 12th to support Zander Neuhaus Memorial Fund, SCOPE, Simon’s Fund and this mission to inspire more acts of kindness.

All The Best,

Scott Rosenbluth, CECBR Assistant Director
