Reno, NV (August 8, 2013) – Nearly 75 children, teens and volunteers enjoyed Camp Solace at Lake Tahoe last weekend, where they were able to have fun, share stories of the people they’ve lost and just be kids. “Every year, I’m reminded of what a life-changing experience Camp is,” said Camp Solace Director Monica Gonzalez. “What a blessing to be able to come together with these amazing volunteers and young people. Together, we created a community where everyone felt safe to share our experiences with death and to grieve freely.”
