Trippley Foundation Camp Encouragement

Camp Encouragement benefits bereaved children, their families, and the community of Chester. It is a compassionate, loving, nurturing atmosphere. It is important because bereaved children from lower socio-economic classes often fall through the cracks in our society. Chairperson and Founder Patricia Trippley-Demiranda organizes a group of lovely volunteers who design two weeks worth of experiences for the children which opens their eyes to new possibilities and creates lasting bonds.
