BROOKVILLE, NY (WCBS 880) – Many of the youngest children of 9/11 victims feel worry about losing their surviving parent.

At a camp at Long Island University‘s C.W. Post Campus, their needs are met and questions answered.

It’s a free camp that meets once a week during the summer.

It’s a chance, one counselor tells Newsday, for these kids to feel like kids.

It’s estimated some 3,000 children lost a parent in the 9/11 attacks.

Many of these children are only now beginning to understand what happened that day ten years ago.
