BENEFITING: Experience Camps
ORGANIZER: Experience Camps
Experience Camps are one-week camps for boys and girls who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. It's a place where kids can laugh, cry, play, create, remember the person who died, or forget the grief that weighs them down. It's a place where they can feel "normal", because everyone there has been through something similar and understands what it's like to lose someone important to them.And everyone will tell you..."It's the best week of the year".
I have volunteered at this wonderful organization for the last two summers and I can honestly say I've seen how it changes these boys lives. This organization has superb leadership and is committed to making a real difference. I'm proud to play a small part in it. Check out a few of my pictures from Summer 2016.
This year, we're raising money to keep the magic going, expanding our camper numbers, camp locations and year-round programs so that campers can stay connected and never feel alone in their grief.
