The 2021 Somerset 5k will benefit Experience Camps for grieving children. Experience Camps is a national, no-cost program for grieving children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. Their one-week, overnight summer camp and year-round programs help to reframe the experience of grief and empower kids to develop invaluable coping skills that enable them to move forward with their lives. Through compassion, connection, and play, Experience Camps empowers grieving children to embody a life full of hope and possibility.
Experience Camps was first established at Camp Manitou in 2009 and has transformed the lives of thousands of children by reframing the experience of grief and empowering campers with confidence, skills and support to move forward with their lives.
If you would like to encourage your daughter to participate and support Experience Camps, a donation of any amount will provide your child with the official Somerset 5K race bib and an exclusive Somerset facial covering. All campers will be able to participate, regardless of a donation.
Somerset has given us lifelong experiences that we will never forget and we want to share those experiences with others. Any amount you donate gets kids closer to a life-changing opportunity here at Camp Somerset.
