Camper Comments

Wondering if Camp Widow is right for you? Read through the comments from past campers to get a sense of what this program offers to the widowed people who attend.

Before this weekend, I hated the word widow. Now I know widows not only rock but are resilient!!

I'm heading home today. Suitcase is about 6kg heavier - heart is much lighter having learned a lot over the weekend and released some sadness. Thanks for welcoming this lost Brit into the fold!

What a great experience Camp Widow Toronto was this weekend. Amazing people .... all of you. It was comforting to be with people who are traveling my journey and get it. I felt real for the weekend.

My first Camp Widow was an amazing experience. Unquestionably the most caring and inspiring group of people I will ever meet!

So would I go again? YES. (How do you shout YES?) Will I go again? YES!
