Why is there a semi-formal banquet at camp?

A:

When you are widowed, forgetting how to have fun is a common experience. Rarely do we have an opportunity to dance, laugh, and enjoy the company of friends, in a judgment-free, safe environment. The Soaring Spirits banquet at Camp Widow® creates an atmosphere where celebrating how far we’ve each come through this widowed experience, honoring the love we have for our late spouses and partners, as well as reveling in the friendships we’ve made over this unique weekend is encouraged. Many of our campers have rediscovered their desire to live on the dance floor at Camp Widow®.
