Through various therapeutic activities, such as art & music therapy, group discussions, and outdoor recreation (e.g., kayaking, swimming, and archery), we aim to help children develop coping strategies and foster resilience during this difficult time. The camp is provided free of charge, thanks to the generous support of our community sponsors. Parents/guardians of our campers are only responsible for transportation and lodging.
