Grief Summer Camps for Children

Toward Zero Scholarships - The Foundation provides travel scholarships for children who have lost a parent, sibling, or caregiver to a roadway work zone accident until we can reduce the number of work zone deaths. It is our hope to eventually give out zero scholarships as a result of zero fatalities.


The Foundation New Program Makes Summer Camp Available to Surviving Children



New Program Available Through The Foundation

  • The Foundation is working with “Experience Camps” to provide children who have lost a parent, sibling, or caregiver to a roadway work zone accident a safe place to meet other children who are coping with similar challenges.
  • The one-week Experience Camps are places for kids to laugh, cry, play, create, and remember the person who died - or forget the grief that weighs them down.
  • “While The Foundation will continue the Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program for higher education dreams, this additional program is geared to children who are left with heartache when a loved one is killed in a work zone,” said Foundation President Tom Wood, of Sherwin-Williams.
