Introducing Camp Lolo
Transcript of Introducing Camp Lolo
June 16 and 17th, 2017
What is Camp Lolo
Camp LOLO is a two-day camp for children and teens who are grieving the death of someone close to them. LOLO stands for loss of a loved one. Camp is comprised of fun-filled camp activities paired with grief support therapy to help children and teens cope with loss.
The camp is open to anyone ages 6 to 17 who has experienced the death of a family member or someone close to them within the last year.
Camp LOLO is free to all campers. It is made possible by the generous support of local business, community organizations, and wonderful volunteers who make it possible to provide this service at no cost to bereaved families.
The Watson Family
2014 one of our board members, Brandie Thomson, met the Watson family. Sam Watson was suffering from ALS and was given six months left to live. His care was covered by hospice, but the rest of the family was unable to get any assistance from the government. When Sam passed on March 7, 2015. The young family did not have enough to provide grief counseling for the three children: Justin, Jake, and JaLyssa. Upon further research, Brandie discovered that there is no other program like this in the Treasure Valley and decided to create the camp. Camp LOLO is dedicated to the Watson family and the many other bereaving families in our community.
