Camp Spirit Song 2023

Camp Spirit Song 2023

July 30, 2023 - August 4, 2023

Camp Spirit Song is offered in partnership with the SpiritWorks Foundation to give the gift of a camp experience to children in Province III (Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia) affected by the opioid substance use disorder of a parent or other close loved one. 

Campers have the opportunity to participate in all the classic camp activities: swimming, games, crafts, ropes course, canoeing, chapel* and more. First and foremost, Camp Spirit Song is a place where kids can leave aside their burdens and be kids for a week. Claggett counselors lead campers in recreational and relationship building activities, helping campers to create a supportive community, make new friends, and have fun.

Each day, campers gather for Small Group sessions led by experienced counselors from Spiritworks Foundation for the Soul, an organization that specializes in addiction services and recovery for families affected by addiction. 

Campers learn the “Seven C’s” of a family member’s addiction: “I didn’t cause it, I can’t cure it, I can’t control it, but I can take care of myself by communicating my feelings, making good choices, and celebrating myself.” Sessions give campers a safe place to talk openly about their experiences with addiction and support each other as they process the ways in which opioid addiction has affected them.

As part of our mission to make this program accessible to all campers and families, we are committed to keeping Camp Spirit Song free to participants. Starting in summer 2023, Camp Spirit Song will require a $50 fully refundable deposit in order to register, which will be refunded to families upon arrival at camp. The deposit will not be refunded for cancellations within two weeks of the session. The goal of this new policy is to limit the number of last minute cancellations or "no-show" registrations so that we can more accurately prepare materials, food, and staff leading up to the week. If you have any questions about this new policy, or concerns about making this payment, please reach out to Rosie Alger, Programs Administrator, at
