At Cole’s Camp, it is our vision to provide support for grieving families who have experienced the loss of a child or loved one. In 2016, Cole Mander unexpectedly passed away at only 22 months old. Cole was a happy-go-lucky little boy who touched numerous hearts and is sorely missed by his family, his friends and the community.

His parents have found that as they walk their own path of grief, their daughters are navigating their grief too. There is not a handbook to assist parents in the daily emotions or struggles their children face as they grieve. We intend to provide a space for love to grow as we remember and honor our passed loved one. At Cole’s Camp, we offer a place of safety, peace and hope for the future through individual activities and group sessions to escape daily anxieties.

Our Story


Although we are in the early stages of planning, we have dreams of one day building a facility that will be called Cole’s Camp.

For now, we are taking this process one step at a time as we fill our hearts and honor loved ones who were taken too soon.
