What is the CCA Retreat about?

ConnectMed is so honored to be participating in the CCA (Children’s Craniofacial Association) Annual Family Retreat again this June 27-30, 2019 in Scottsdale, Arizona! The CCA is a national nonprofit organization that addresses the medical, financial, psychosocial, emotional, and educational concerns relating to craniofacial conditions.


CCA’s Annual Family Retreat & Educational Symposium provides individuals affected by facial differences, their siblings and parents an opportunity to interact with others who have endured similar experiences. The unique weekend retreat allows families to share ideas, problems and solutions and make life-long friendships. The weekend kicks off on Thursday June 27th with an Educational Symposium, and the rest of the weekend allows time and activities to build new relationships and bonds of understanding and caring.  More information available here: CCA Family Retreat



This year CCA has invited us to lead Camp CARE at their retreat! Camp CARE is an opportunity for individual counseling sessions, staffed by licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Dana Howorth, who has spent much of her clinical career working with children.  She will be available for individual counseling sessions several hours each day of the retreat.  We recommend signing up ahead of time through the link below, but walk-in appointments are welcomed too, as long as space is available! Camp CARE appointments are available 11AM-4PM on Thursday and Friday, and 1-4:30 Saturday afternoon.  Cashel Gaffey, a social worker (MSW) with a background in facilitating inclusive, strengths-focused group work and mental health, will also be available for informal, impromptu group sessions. 

Retreat-goers, taking care of yourselves at the retreat is important, as the days start early, run long, and are filled with emotional experiences. Having a chance to speak with our counselors can be a wonderful addition to your experience at the retreat, allowing designated time to focus on YOU!
