CAMP SOL INC
March 10, 2011

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!

The Great!

I have learned so much about grief in children through their retreats and events. I've had access to counselors, music therapists, play therapists and so many wonderful child-life volunteers. My family has been given a gift of TIME and PLACE to grieve and heal together.

Expand it to other families and areas - I can't imagine how we would have fared without it!
