Camp Sol is a non-profit organization that provides support to families who have experienced the death of a child. Founded in 1999, the camp’s mission is to heal the family heart “through a supportive, warm environment where grieving families share experiences and participate in a variety of fun and nurturing activities.”
I nominated this month’s charity because I believe in the mission of this organization. After meeting many of the family members at the recent Camp Sol 5k fundraiser, I just knew I had to spread the word. I am a firm believer in peer healing and having a support group to get through impossibly tough times.
Camp Sol utilizes the experiences of parents who have experienced the death of a child, along with the expertise and support of child life specialists, nurses, physicians, chaplains, social workers, play therapists, music therapists, psychologists and community grief support representatives to assist these grieving families.
