Creative Healing Connections offers arts retreats for people who are in need of opportunities to heal. We provide guided, creative activities that encourage self expression, new awareness and reconnection with our healthy selves. We have been developing our unique blend of therapeutic arts and self-expression activities for over thirteen years. Since 1998 we have offered more than 30 retreats benefiting the minds, bodies and spirits of approximately 510 women, 80 men and 60 children.

CHC participant and former Board Member…

Randy Lewis peacefully passed away at home, surrounded by her family on  Wed. June 18, 2014. Randy was involved with Creative Healing Connections for the past several years, first as a participant and more recently as a board member. She is most fondly remembered for her generosity in leading journaling workshops at Arts and Healing Retreats at Great Camp Sagamore.  She inspired many participants to imagine their healing through writing.  Randy brought journals to retreats as gifts to the women who attended and encouraged them to write poetry, stories, diaries.  As a beloved journalist, Randy introduced the public to CHC retreats through articles in Adirondack Life, Adirondack Explorer, and The Adirondack Daily Enterprise. Her shared poems and ready smile will be long remembered both at retreats and every time we put pen to paper.

A scholarship fund has been created in honor of Randy Lewis to help assist the women she cared about so deeply. One can donate by using the yellow donate button on the left margin and paying by either credit card or paypal account, where you can designate it to “The Randy Lewis Scholarship Fund” or send a check to: Creative Healing Connections and send to our address: PO Box 69, Bakers Mills, NY 12811
