A fun and safe place for grieving children.

"My Second Home"

 

Karina G. attended her first Comfort Zone Camp in 2012 when she was 15, very much still grieving the loss of her father. When Karina first found out that she would be attending the camp, she did not want to go.

 

“I thought it was just going to be a lot of sadness and people crying everywhere,” says Karina.

 

However, by the time she left the camp it was clear that going was one of the best decisions she has ever made.

 

“I just felt so safe and welcomed by everyone there and it was so nice to have other kids there that were going through the same things as me,” says Karina.

 

One of Karina’s most cherished memories of her camp experience was during a bonfire the camp had. During the bonfire there is a moment of silence, while one person sings the song, “It’s OK to Remember.”

 

“During that time, I think about all the times my dad and I use to share and knowing that it’s ok and he is in a better place,” says Karina. “This is not a goodbye, it’s an I’ll see you later.”

 

With her Comfort Zone Camp experience having such a positive impact on her life, Karina has decided to give back. She is now a Big Buddy for Comfort Zone assisting children during the camp weekends manage and cope with their grief just as she was helped a few years ago.

 

“Throughout my life, I have always wanted to help children and I know this camp makes a positive impact on these kids,” says Karina.  “I don’t just consider it a weekend camp I go to, I now call it my second home.”
