Boomer made the trip from Atlanta to Maine this summer to help volunteer at ManEx and says it was the "best week of his life!". He is sporting his "rise up" shades to encourage everyone to donate, so he'll be able to meet even more kids next summer!

BENEFITING: Experience Camps
ORGANIZER: Experience Camps
Experience Camps wrote -
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. It's a home away from home. And just about everyone will tell you..."It's the best week of the year".
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.
