Camp Promise is an annual camp dedicated to counseling children who are suffering from the loss of a loved one. Largely through community donations, counselors are given the opportunity to work with young children to help ease the grieving process. The WPC outreach programs have benefited charities such as Big Brothers and Sisters, Mobile Meals, Good Neighbors Food Center and the Haven of Rest.
