Review for Camp Sol Inc, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In June 2003, we lost our little boy, Michael, to a brain tumor after a 9 month fight. Our hospice nurse was the first person to suggest Camp Sol to us. I was very nervous about attending camp, but I thought that it would be helpful for our daughter. I never knew just how much Camp Sol would help me too. We have been to Camp Sol 8 times now and each time we leave there we are in a better place than when we arrived. I love that get we get to spend time as a family not only healing, but having fun without the distractions of everyday life. I also love that our daughter is getting "help" without realizing it - she just thinks she is having fun. Getting to spend so much time with other families who have been through this same loss and "get it" is so helpful in knowing that you are not alone. We love Camp Sol and I can't imagine where we would be if it was not for them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing how our daughter has gone through the grieving process. Each time we go we learn about what phase she is in and how a typical child of her age deals with death. I love knowing that the things she says or does is very normal.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish that Camp Sol was in other areas. I hear of other families who have lost a child and there is nothing like Camp Sol in their area.
