CCA Retreat Partner

The CCA’s Annual Family Retreat & Educational Symposium is an amazing 4-day opportunity for people with craniofacial conditions to come together and interact with others who have endured similar experiences. They listen to guest speakers, and attend information sessions and community-bonding activities. They also can join ConnectMed-facilitated activities such as our Camp Cosmos Booth, teen workshop, parent panel, our signature “Act It Out” theater therapy workshop, and one-on-one counseling via Camp Care.
