A free sleep-away camp for children of breast cancer survivors or children who have lost their mothers to breast cancer - the only service we know of exclusively for children in this situation. Children typically don’t talk about their fear. Parents tell us that often they act out because they are afraid of losing the parent they love and depend on. Camp provides a support group for them. They have fun, hike, swim, do art projects, learn about healthy cooking and participate in sharing circles where many, for the first time, verbalize their fears. Friendships are developed that last throughout the years.
