What Our Partners Say

Since 2012, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s Partnership with the Comfort Zone Camp and their professional, compassionate staff has provided the unique opportunity for children and stepchildren of firefighters who have died in the line-of-duty to meet other children from across the country who have experienced a similar loss. The camp atmosphere of healing helps our campers better understand their grief while learning skills to cope with their loss in everyday life.

“We chose CZC because of their impeccable reputation nationally. CZC offers the strongest programming for kids living with grief including assessment tools and volunteer training. Their staff and administration were pleasant, cooperative and easy to coordinate camp details. Kids played, laughed and shared their unique grief experiences while making friends and learning skills to live with their grief. Parents expressed deep gratitude for this opportunity to support their children. Utah’s first Kid’s Overnight Grief Camp in Utah was a huge hit and far surpassed Intermountain Healthcare Primary Children’s Hospital expectations.”

“After my daughter’s experience I knew I needed to find a way to bring CZC right here to Florida. I spoke with Comfort Zone staff and we started a plan to bring CZC to Florida. 9 years later my dream started to come to fruition”
