Families Strengthen Bonds and Remember Loved Ones

Last month, Alive held our annual Family Retreat. Families come together to play, remember, share, and connect during this special event. Hands-on memorial crafts allowed our participants to express their grief in new and creative ways, and recreational activities gave families the chance to make beautiful new memories together while remembering their loved ones. Our annual retreat is held each fall at Camp Widjiwagan and is open to families with children under 18. Thanks to our donors’ generous support, we can offer scholarships to those in need.

Thank you, thank you for such an AMAZING Family Camp!!! The boys loved it! It was so fun and memorable. It was amazing for me to see other families who have gone through similar experiences…Please thank the volunteers for us – everyone was so thoughtful and observant… folks stepped in exactly at the right times when we needed the extra help. My kids say the word Alive and think of love, support and joy. Those are so priceless to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Special thanks to all who made this event possible and to all who attended. We are so grateful to this community that we get to serve!
