Loudoun County Agencies Partner to Serve Youth at Camp REAL
The Prevention/Intervention team of the Loudoun County Department of Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Developmental Services (MHSADS) has partnered again with Loudoun County Public Schools and the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office for Camp REAL (Raising Education, Achievement and Leadership), a summer program for youth who are at high risk for substance abuse and gang involvement.
This summer, Camp REAL participants decided to raise funds for various local and national charities. The youngsters were involved in the selection, planning and implementation of the projects to collect donations for the five selected charities: Interfaith Relief, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Worldwide Wildlife Fund, Make a Wish Foundation, and Inova Loudoun’s Mobile Hope Health Services. Participants held car washes, bake sales, food drives, and created T-shirts to sell. In all, Camp REAL collected almost $3,000 dollars, which was divided up between the charities.
For more information about Camp REAL, contact Judith Romberg, Loudoun County Prevention & Intervention Program Manager, at 703-777-0176. Read more on the county’s website: http://loudoun.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1127
