The Foundation seeks applicants for Experience Camps Travel Scholarship program
Experience Camps Travel Scholarship program to cover round-trip travel expenses to help children coping with loss
(Fredericksburg, Va.) - The American Traffic Safety Services Foundation (ATSSF) is now offering travel scholarships for eligible children to attend Experience Camps.
Experience Camps, a non-profit started in Maine in 2009, offers camps geared toward supporting children of various ages that are coping with grief caused by the loss of a loved one, and to build a support group of young individuals who are undergoing similar challenges.
The Foundation’s mission is to support injured or fallen roadway workers and their families, and to further that goal the non-profit has created the Experience Camps Travel Scholarship program. The scholarship program will cover the round-trip travel expenses for the week-long free camp for eligible children who have lost a parent, sibling, or caregiver in a roadway work zone accident.
Selected children would have their round-trip travel covered for themselves and a guardian (if applicable) to attend any of the four camp locations in the U.S.
The Foundation Manager Lori Diaz is currently seeking eligible children across the country who would like to attend the camp, to apply for the scholarship program.
“The camps give children the opportunity to share their experiences with others who have suffered a similar loss,” Diaz said. “The Foundation supporters and ATSSA members can be part of this too, by simply helping to identify a family who would benefit from such a healing, everlasting experience. We encourage eligible applicants to apply by the July first deadline and to reach out to us with any questions.”
Contact The Foundation Manager, Lori Diaz, for more information about the 2018 Experience Camps Travel Scholarship Program and the application, which can be found at www.atssa.com/TheFoundation. The application deadline is July 1. To learn more about Experience Camps, visit www.experience.camp.
