Comfort Zone Camp was founded in 1998 in Richmond, Virginia, by Lynne Hughes, author of You Are Not Alone, a bereavement book for teens. The camp was born out of a desire to provide a caring community and safe haven for children who are grieving the loss of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. Comfort Zone Camp believes that by providing an ongoing, strong support network and multiple opportunities to tackle grief-related issues as they arise, children are more likely to reach their full potential and utilize that potential as they transition into adulthood.
As a young adult, Scargo Hill Capital CEO Andy Moser lost both his parents to illness. As he grows older and progresses further in his professional career, Andy has come to learn of many others who also lost a parent at a young age. Because most people don’t like to talk about bereavement and how to cope, he believes that organizations like Comfort Zone Camp are vital to ensuring that children receive the support they need to process grief.
