Camp SoulGrow is a creative workshop camp offered locally in Montauk and Hampton Bays, as well as in New Orleans, that aims to "inspire children's growth from the inside out." The non-profit hosts donation-operated volunteer workshops and adventures that provide a place where little ones can test out new interests and discover new skills, strengths, and passions. Camp SoulGrow utilizes members of the East End community who offer their expertise as mentors.
Rosiere founded the organization in Montauk in July of 2014, and since then it has expanded to three locations, secured a 23-passenger bus that was painted with help from campers - making it easier to take field trips, presented over 585 workshops, and served more than 900 children.
"See y'all Saturday, March 2 at Shagwong Tavern to let the good times roll... for all kids of Camp SoulGrow!" Rosiere added.
Shagwong Tavern & Restaurant is located at 774 Montauk Highway in Montauk. For more information, visit www.campsoulgrow.org.
