Jul 21-23, 28-30 Rural Action Summer Camp Offers Safe, Fun Way to Learn About the Environment
Want to give your kids an authentic summer camp experience despite the coronavirus pandemic? Rural Action is offering a do-it-yourself camp for 8 to 12 year olds that will focus on the environment and our place in it. And it’s free. Because some of the lessons are location-specific, there will be two three-day camps, allowing campers to choose the one closest to them: Dover/New Philadelphia area, July 21-23 and Dennison/Uhrichsville area, July 28-30. Before each camp starts, parents or guardians will pick up three pre-packaged boxes containing information, supplies and snacks for each of the three following days. Activities will vary but may include building a homemade solar oven, geocaching, and visiting with a park ranger, a biologist, a forester, and a farmer on a video call. Each day’s box will provide approximately four hours of engagement, with some activities possibly requiring parental assistance. Internet access is recommended, but not required. To register, go to Rural Action’s website or the Facebook page of Rural Action, Huff Run Watershed, or Mud Run Watershed. The camps are free thanks to philanthropic support. Rural Action is a regional community development organization with a 32-county footprint working with members and community leaders on a range of quality of life, environmental, and economic projects across rural Appalachian Ohio. Its mission is to build a more just economy by developing the region’s assets in environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable ways. Learn more about Rural Action at www.ruralaction.org

Many women without health insurance are not aware that this service exists and that they have the opportunity to receive breast and cervical cancer screenings. The Trinity Breast and Cervical Program is part of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. The money for this program is funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and also the state of Ohio. They are reaching out to women who have not been able to get their annual screenings done because they cannot afford it. Pap Tests, Pelvic Exams, and Clinical Breast Exams are offered to women 40 years of age and over, and also mammograms for women 50 years of age and over who are uninsured and have an income at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. To set up an appointment, women can call Trinity BCCP at 1-800-921-5151. Trinity will complete an application and help them to choose a provider close to their home. Once enrolled the women are scheduled for their screenings and an appointment letter is mailed to them that they in turn take to their appointment. The letter tells the provider that Trinity BCCP should be billed for the approved visit. Qualified women do not have to pay up front and will not receive a bill for approved services by Trinity BCCP. For a limited time Trinity BCCP will give each woman who completes her screening services a $20 gift card. (According to Barb Steitz, Program Manager at Trinity BCCP, the program began in 1994 and has funded over 118,000 pap tests, 131,000 clinical breast exams and 109,000 mammograms for eligible women.)
