HATTIESBURG, Miss. – (April 3, 2017) Forrest General is currently welcoming community volunteers to participate in Camp Bluebird, an adult cancer survivor camp hosted by Forrest General and Hattiesburg Clinic.
Camp Bluebird, the first camp for adult cancer patients and survivors in Mississippi, will celebrate its twenty-eighth year on April 21-23, 2017. This two and one-half day camp is held annually at Paul B. Johnson State Park and includes recreational activities, social events, devotional and educational opportunities designed to minister to the whole person with fun and fellowship.
The purpose of the camp is to promote a sense of well-being among campers, teach them how to live with cancer and cancer treatments and to provide a time of rest and relaxation. Camp Bluebird is staffed completely by volunteers, counselors, and healthcare personnel. This year’s theme is There’s No Place Like Bluebird.
