Social Work Camp
June 12th - June 14th, 2020
Social Work Camp Welcomes You!
Social Work Camp is a time for retreat, with yourself, a friend, or a group of colleagues or friends. It was created to provide a reasonably priced continuing education opportunity where we can also unwind, rejuvenate, have fun and return to work inspired.
The setting is historic Berwick Camp, founded in 1872, known for its towering hemlocks and nurturing, peaceful surroundings.
"Social work camp has continually been the professional and personal highlight of the year. I make it and use it for me. Participate in what and how I want without pressure and allow myself to breathe and refresh This is the reminder of why I stay in social work."
"This has been my first year of social work camp but it won't be my last. I can honestly say that I've enjoyed my time and learned a great deal along the way. It's great to be "with my people".
"Social work camp is awesome! The setting was peaceful and encouraged a sense of community. The food was fantastic- I am sure I gained 5 pounds!There was a good balance of professional development and personal time.I will be back!"
"Highly recommend Social work camp to anyone interested in sharing experiences with other social workers, taking time out of busy schedules, eating good food, hearing interesting and thought provoking talks and discussions,and re-connecting with friends and meeting new ones. It's awesome,"
Social work camp is something I look forward to each year. The location is beautiful, the staff and volunteers always go above and beyond to accommodate, and the balance between rejuvenation and professional engagement is perfect. I recommend to anyone sitting on the fence...come! You'll love it."
" You will absolutely feel cared for. You can take time to enjoy presentations and activities, or use time to relax and recharge (or both!) "Everything is optional" and you will feel so wonderful about your experience.It is an absolute must-do. I always return recharged, reconnected, and ready to dive back into everyday social work."
