Sara Deren is the founder and Executive Director of Experience Camps. Sara received her MBA from Columbia University and spent 12 years in the financial services industry before turning her full attention to camp. Experience Camps was founded on Sara’s, and her husband, Jon’s, desire to provide the camp experience to children who would not otherwise have that opportunity. She now uses her business background and love of camp to develop and operate Experience Camps, and to ensure that our campers enjoy the best that summer camp has to offer.
“It’s the best week of the year!” That’s what kids say after attending Experience Camps, a week long camp for kids who have lost a close loved one. The week on BetterWorldians Radio we’re speaking with Experience Camps founder Sara Deren. She’ll discuss how the idea for Experience Camps was formed and how it’s brightening the lives of young people living with grief.
