A fun and safe place for grieving children.

Camper Continues to Give Back in a Variety of Roles

Rachel Walters first came to Comfort Zone in New Jersey as a camper. As soon as she was old enough, she became a volunteer. Check out our Q&A with Rachel below!


How long have you been a volunteer for Comfort Zone, and what roles have you held?

I have been a volunteer for 7 years. I have been a Big Buddy, Healing Circle Assistant, Junior Counselor and a Floater. I was also a part of the Volunteer Council for two years. 



What first brought you to Comfort Zone Camp?

I originally started going to Comfort Zone Camp about 8 years ago as a camper after I lost my dad. I started volunteering as soon as I was old enough because I wanted to be able to give back and help other campers in the same way that Comfort Zone has helped me.


What’s your favorite part about camp weekend?

My favorite part of a camp weekend is the people you meet and being a part of the Comfort Zone Camp family. I truly believe that Comfort Zone is filled with some of the greatest people in the world. I love the connection that everyone makes with each other and being able to see old friends as well as make new ones. I also love the sense of family and community that everyone builds within a weekend. It is really amazing being able to witness the growth of kids within a weekend and throughout the years.


Why should others get involved at Comfort Zone?

I think that anyone who has ever thought of getting involved with Comfort Zone should definitely give it a try. I know they will not regret it. They will become part of a community like no other and witness things that are truly magical. They will get a chance to just be silly and have fun. They will be able to be a friend for a kid who really needs it and help in giving them the opportunity to be a kid again.
