The Solace Tree mission is to provide peer support, information and education to schools and the community to promote healing and recovery for grieving children, teens and their families who are affected by loss.

Each summer, Solace Tree children and teens gather together on the shores of Lake Tahoe for a fun-filled weekend where they kayak, play on the beach, build campfires and share stories of the people they've lost in a special environment that supports their journey through the grieving process. This year, Camp Solace will be held August 2-4. For more information, visit www.solacetree.org/programs/grief-camp.

Camp Solace is mostly free, except for a $20 registration fee to hold each camper's spot. Everything else, from the facilities to the food and the materials are provided for the campers. “This is our eighth camp, and we’ve served more than 250 campers so far, but economic times have been challenging and The Solace Tree is in need of $15,000 to make this year’s camp a reality,” explained Solace Tree Board Chairman David Wertzberger. “Please consider donating money or products to help us help these kids. Any amount is appreciated.” Here are some of the areas where people can help:
• Camp supplies
• Arts and craft supplies
• WalMart gift cards for food, snacks and drinks
• Money
