Stone's Throw Family Weekend
At YMCA Camp Bernie in Port Murray, NJ
A family weekend getaway offered to New York City EMTs and Paramedics still coping with stresses stemming from their work during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Special priority given to families who experienced a separation during the height of New York's surge.
Stone's Throw Family Weekend is the name of the offering put together by grateful individuals who wish to show their support to these superhero families, and is not a registered non-profit.
NYC EMS Personnel and their families, especially in cases where the EMS worker spent time away from their children due to their work with COVID-19
We have room for up to 10 families to participate.

This has been a time of high stress for everyone, especially those working on the frontlines and the families who love them. We want to show our gratitude and give your family a chance to have fun together in a peaceful, relaxing setting.
Arts and crafts, time spent in nature, campfires, (socially distanced) group games, mindfulness activities, great food, and more!
Stone's Throw Family Weekend is an opportunity to take a break, relax in your family's private cabin, and enjoy activities together.
