Camp Widow opening address

Join First Light Widowed Association President and Executive Director, Rebecca Adams, for the Camp Widow opening address.

This welcome session will set the tone for our weekend together. Rebecca will share important information about how to get the most from your Camp Widow experience, help to settle any nerves, and guide us all through steps we can take to ensure that Camp Widow 2024 is a supportive and successful event for everyone in our community.

We know it might feel intimidating to walk through the doors on that first morning, but Rebecca will make you feel glad that you took that step.

About Rebecca

First Light co-founder, president and Executive Director, Rebecca Adams, never imaged that her life would end up being dedicated to helping young widowed people. However, she also could never have imagined that she would lose her newlywed husband to depression unexpectedly at the tender age of 33.

Ten years on, Rebecca has navigated her way through the devastation and trauma of young widowhood to rebuild a full and happy life. She now has a passion to ensure that others who find themselves in her position, have access to the resources, programs and support that she wished existed for her.

A former journalist and communications advisor, Rebecca now draws upon her leadership skills, vision and commitment to serving widowed people, to drive the First Light team towards our goal of being a nationally-recognised forerunner in the field of widowed support and grief support awareness.

Hope, community, understanding

Join our community for access to information, resources, events, and a network of widowed people for peer support. Joining is free, with options to become a financial supporter to keep us running and helping others.
