PEARLAND — A camp that specializes in helping children process their trauma through creative activities and play is coming to the Pearland area this month.

Camp Noah starts at 8:30 a.m. Monday and runs through Friday at St Andrew Episcopal Church, 2535 E. Broadway St. The camp goes until 3 p.m. with breakfast, lunch and two snacks provided daily.

Registration is free and campers can receive more than $150 worth of crafts and school supplies. Any elementary-age children are welcome to attend one week of camp.

The camp teaches children it’s OK if they have experienced trauma or a disaster and gives them tips on how to cope, event organizer Tiffani Laverell said

She hopes children who attend can fully realize they have a support group, Laverell said.

“Adults are genuinely invested in them and support them,” she said.

To register for Camp Noah go to www.campnoah.org. For information call 800-987-0061.
