Embraced by Love
Unlike a lot of people who move to Colorado, Ray didn’t come here for the mountains, he was far more interested in a therapeutic treasure tucked inside them. A psychological social worker by profession, Ray served as the director of Forest Heights Lodge for 35 years.

As the founder of Camp Comfort, Sallie knows that the key to camp is that children can look around and realize, ‘I’m not alone in my grief.’ “Seeing children evolve and open up during their weekend grief journey is amazing. The hugs, the conversation, and the smiles are worth everything. To provide such a safe and fun place where a child can be silent or crying in a support group and then be joyful when they are participating in an activity is truly heartwarming. Camp Comfort is simply a part of my heart.”
