Family Counseling Service
Summer of Healing Camp 2023
Family Counseling Service has been providing therapeutic
camps to children who have experienced trauma for the past 24 years and has
helped over 1,600 children recover from the effects of abuse.
- Family Counseling Service has partnered with Camp
Ronald McDonald House Charities to host the camp at Eagle Lake,
California. Eagle Lake is the second largest natural lake in California
located in the high sierras just outside of Susanville.
- The volunteers help the child heal from trauma in a
nonjudgmental and safe space by spending the week alongside the children.
Volunteers sleep in the cabins, eat with, and do all activities with the
children creating a stable environment.
- Children and volunteers have the opportunity to have
fun by swimming in the lake, playing lawn games, learning archery, riding
bike, and creating art together.
- Children are given the chance to have role models and
build positive experiences with healthy adults.
- Volunteers are given the opportunity to make a
difference in the lives of children who have experienced abuse.
- In addition to all the fun camp
has to offer, campers are empowered to overcome the emotional effects of
trauma through a group trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy
