Camp Widow® is a three-day retreat that provides practical tools, valuable resources and peer-based encouragement for rebuilding your life in the aftermath of the death of a spouse or partner - all in a positive, uplifting atmosphere.
The program was created in 2009 by Michele Nef Hernandez who was a 35-year-old mother of three when her husband Phil was tragically killed in a car accident in 2005. Based in the United States, Camp Widow® is currently held every year in California, Florida and Canada.
The founding directors of First Light have travelled to the United States to experience Camp Widow® a number of times and are now working closely with founder Michele to bring this hope-filled weekend to Australia so local widowed people can also have the opportunity to benefit from its inspirational, healing effects.
One of the features that makes Camp Widow® so unique is that all events, including workshops, round table discussions and face-to-face networking opportunities, are all lead and facilitated by widowed people, for widowed people.
Camp Widow® is a life-changing experience for widowed men and women. Attendees have travelled from all over the world, to the United States and Canada, to join the non-denominational community of others who are making their way through widowhood one day at a time and to experience the camaraderie that this event creates.
