Review for CAMP SOL INC, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son passed away in 2006. My older children, husband and I attended Camp Sol's Spring Family Retreat in 2007. I initially went "for the kids". I am so glad I did! We all benefited individually, but the greatest thing was how it helped our family. The breakout sessions for the parents were helpful and comforting for my husband and I. The kids loved the music and play therapy and remembrance activities. The last thing we did was a remembrance ceremony, as a family. It was incredible and heartbreaking - but in a very constructive way. (I know that sounds strange, but when you've buried a child your life becomes a giant conundrum!)

We have returned every year, no question about it! My kids start asking to pack several weeks prior, not because it's necessary, but because they just can't wait!
