Camp Hope hosts 26 campers at Tahoe
July 17, 2017
The Douglas Center for Hope and Healing recently held its third annual Camp Hope at Roundhill Pines Resort at Lake Tahoe.
"We were honored to host 26 campers ages 7-15 from Douglas County and surrounding communities," Executive Director Jodi Wass said. "The purpose of our camp is to provide a safe and fun environment for children and teens to share their experiences of loss and realize they are not alone. We also teach them healthy coping skills and ways to honor and memorialize their loved ones."
Wass thanked Douglas County Community Grant and the County Commissioners for their grant and donations from the Solace Tree that made Camp Hope possible.
"We would also like to thank our wonderful volunteers who gave their time and energy and made such meaningful connections with our campers," Wass said. "We look forward to providing our fourth annual Camp Hope during the summer of 2018"
