A fun and safe place for grieving children.


19th Annual Comfort Zone Camp Gala


Comfort Zone Camp builds resilient communities through therapeutic programs that give youth the opportunity to belong and contribute. Grieving youth, when connected to a supportive community, give back in meaningful ways and gain perspective, self-worth, and purpose. The community has a vital role in creating an environment that promotes and empowers young people to grieve, heal, and give back.

"I am honored to serve as this year's gala chair! Comfort Zone has come to mean so much to my 2 children and me since the death of my husband in 2014. Both of my children have enjoyed being campers over the past 4 years because CZC provides a safe place for them to grieve, heal and grow. Each year they find in CZC a place where they can let go of the grief that they work so hard to hide from others. They are surrounded by people of all ages who "get it." Friends in the camp bubble prove to them year after year that they are not alone. They show them that it's ok to cry, and it's ok to grieve on their own terms. I hope you will join me in supporting CZC and the amazing things they do for hundreds of children each year. Thank you!"
