Camp Hometown Heroes has made it their mission to embrace the children of the fallen. The inaugural launch of Camp Hometown Heroes was June 22, 2013 and more than 60 children (ages 7-17) of fallen U.S service members arrived at YMCA Camp Matawa in Campbellsport, Wisconsin. The camp affords these children the traditional camp experience emphasizing friendship and fun, but also incorporates personal growth and healing. While traditional camp activities such as campfires, horseback riding, swimming and team sports are offered, the camp also arranges for pediatric grief counselors from Kyle’s Korner to provide counseling, group support and art therapy.
