How it works

We partner with other organizations that connect us with families and we give them a break from the hard times that they’ve been going through.

Whether they are on a hike, playing on the baseball field, or just getting to experience everything that our camp has to offer, it’s an experience that we know they need.

Our Family Retreat takes place at Camp Emma Lou, the E5 Foundation’s outdoor recreational retreat. Children and their families who are dealing with an illness, hardship, or other special needs are invited to the camp for an expense-paid weekend of family time and relaxation.
