Why was Camp Gibbous created?
Why the name "Gibbous"?
The definition of “gibbous” refers to a moon in between a half-moon but less than a full moon.
The teens chose this name to illustrate the many transitions they will endure as young adults. One being their transition from Camp Crescent Moon to Camp Gibbous and the transition from pediatric to adult care.
