Celebrating Camp Kangaroo on Giving Tuesday01 Dec 2020, Posted by Camp Kangaroo in
This year, while we celebrate Camp Kangaroo, Seasons Hospice Foundation’s free children’s bereavement camp, we are also acutely aware of how much the need for this type of support has grown. This Giving Tuesday, we’re asking for your support to ensure Camp Kangaroo continues to support grieving kids and their families. Click here to make your donation now!
The 2020 pivot:
The Pandemic may have prevented us from hosting 8 out of our 11 camps, but it did not make a dent in our dedication to our community. We immediately made the pivot so many have made. Camp sessions were offered virtually, supplies for legacy crafts and family activities were delivered to homes, and, when safe to do so, one-on-one counseling sessions were held.
What comes next?
We wish we had more answers, but we do know we will be able to hug our campers again. We know we’ll continue to provide an environment where they can support each other, learn from one another and begin to heal. We know that we will return to the brighter days highlighted in the video below. And we know, we need your help to do so. Click here to help!
Please take a couple of minutes to watch this wonderful video where counselors, administrators and campers explain what happens at Camp Kangaroo!
