Why Camp Soar?
1.5 million children are living in a single-family household because of the death of one parent. One out of every 20 children age 15 and younger will suffer the loss of one or both parents*. (US Census Bureau). Grieving children are at a much greater risk than their peers for depression, suicide, poverty and substance abuse.
Camp SOAR makes a profound difference in the lives of grieving children by increasing levels of hope, enhancing self-esteem and by providing positive coping skills.
