BENEFITING: Experience Camps
ORGANIZER: Experience Camps
I was so fortunate to be able to be at Kenex last summer, supporting kids who have lost a loved one through their grief journey. It was one of the most fun and meaningful expereinces I have ever had. We are now raising money to benefit even more kids - and it's your chance to help out!
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.
