Mission Statement

The Sheilah A. Doyle Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides support and assistance to children ages 7-17 whose parent, legal guardian, or sibling fell victim to homicide. Through our partnership with Comfort Zone Camp and our college scholarship program, we believe that we can transform a child's tragedy into a bright future.

Description

Comfort Zone Camp is the nation's largest bereavement camp offering weekend camps to children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver. They provide camps today in Virginia, California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and now Chicago. The organization has served more than 8000 children to date and have been in existence since 1998.


The Sheilah A. Doyle Foundation partnered with Comfort Zone Camp in 2011 to bring local children a camp specific to homicide loss. The camp weekend is available free of charge to Illinois children.
The camp will be held at Camp Manitoqua (http://www.manitoqua.org )in Frankfort, IL from Friday, September 7th, 2012 to Sunday, September 9th, 2012.
