Camp Dragonfly
Kids and their buddies sleep in enclosed cabins on bunks. They play games, make crafts, swim, go boating and gather around the evening campfire. But at this camp each child is paired with an adult "big buddy," a specially trained volunteer who provides companionship, support and supervision throughout the weekend. Medical staff is on site throughout the weekend.
Through this combination of play and camaraderie, Camp Dragonfly leads children through loss, grief and recovery.
