Young Children of Fallen Firefighters Have the Slime of Their Lives at Camp

A place that provides fun, games and memories for the whole family again proves it’s serious when it comes to helping survivors of our nation’s heroes. Nickelodeon Suites Resort in Orlando, Florida, has again partnered with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to sponsor the Hal Bruno Camp for Children of Fallen Firefighters who have been honored at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial located in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The camp will be held August 8-11.

Structured camp activities provide an opportunity for children ages 4-6 from across the country to meet with others in their age group who share a similar experience. The camp provides a therapeutic component in combination with a fun setting, allowing campers to process their grief in a fun and safe environment. Campers will meet SpongeBob, Dora the Explorer, and other favorite cartoon characters and will have the Slime of their life!

Meetings with parents will focus on how to help children who are grieving. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will assist with travel expenses and provide lodging and meals. Fire service volunteers will help with the children’s activities.

Linda Hurley, Director of Survivor Programs, stated, “We wanted to introduce our kids to camp by providing a fun and positive experience that can help with their healing. After having our camp at Nick Hotel last year, we knew we had found the perfect place.”

Set on 24 beautiful acres, Nick Hotel is a family hotel destination that inspires play and imagination, along with exciting kid-friendly attractions. In recognition and appreciation of firefighters, nurses, police officers, and EMTs that serve their communities, Nick has created a “Hero” package to give back including special rates, discounts on food and beverage and resort experiences. Nickelodeon Suites Resort is a corporate sponsor of the Foundation.
