BENEFITING: Experience Camps
ORGANIZER: Experience Camps
Nothing beats kids having fun except more kids having fun.
For the past six summers, I have volunteered at MaxEx in Maine, one of four Experience Camps for Grieving Children. ExCamps are free, one-week camps for boys and girls who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. They are camps where kids can be kids. They are camps where kids build confidence and navigate their grief through friendship, teamwork, athletics, and the common bond of loss. They are camps where kids have a lot of fun.
This year, we're raising money to keep increase the number of campers, camp locations and year-round programs so that campers can stay connected and never feel alone in their grief.
