Each camper is paired with an adult Big Buddy for the entire weekend.  Our volunteer staff includes an on-site nurse (RN), counselors, therapists and adult buddies, many who have also lost family members. Some of our 'Bigs' are counselors from other bereavement camps, and love the experience of coming to camps like ours. It's not a sad place, but a place of healing and memory making. That's why volunteers come back year after year.

The Sophie’s Six Scholarship Project provides educational scholarships to students at Chambersburg Areas Senior High School and Wilson College who intends to pursue a career in counseling.  The scholarship will be awarded to exemplary students who can demonstrate their personal aspirations for this chosen area of study.
