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.
