Eureka, Missouri - August 1-3, 2014
The NFFF partners with Comfort Zone Camp to provide a weekend bereavement camp for children ages 7-17 of fallen firefighters who have been honored in Emmitsburg. This year's camp will be at Camp Wyman in Eureka, Missouri, on August 1-3.
Campers will be paired with Big Buddies from the fire service. They will meet others with a similar loss in Healing Circles, work together as a team on the challenge course, play games and engage in outdoor camp activities. Campers must register for the "2014 August MO Camp in Memory of Hal Bruno" on the Comfort Zone website: https://www.comfortzonecamp.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=600. The deadline for registration is June 27, 2014.
The NFFF will help campers and parents with travel expenses and also provide lodging and meals. While campers are busy, parents will have an opportunity to network and attend sessions to gain information on how to help a grieving child.
We hope that you and your children will join us. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Bev Donlon at firstname.lastname@example.org or (301) 447-1603.
