Camp F.A.C.E.S. Support Camp is an initiative dedicated to families who have suffered the tragic loss of a family member from Emergency Services in Canada. This camp supports surviving families of LODD, Suicide and Sudden Death

By its very nature, Emergency Services are a high risk occupation which could result in a tragic loss, not only to Line of duty death but also by the suicide of a member. The loss of a loved one to a family is tremendous and incredibly challenging to deal with but to a child it can be even greater. Many children experience feelings of confusion, anger, fear, isolation and depression.

Camp F.A.C.E.S. provides families who have suffered this tragic loss the opportunity to be with others who have experienced similar loss. Along with trained personnel and mental health oversight, these families will have the opportunity to experience some normalcy all while developing life long friendships.
