Camberly's Garden was first developed in 2003 as a dedication to children whose lives have come to a sudden and tragic end.

Its creation was inspired by Camberly Holliday, a teenager from Greensboro who unexpectedly died from a brain aneurysm at age 14. Camberly was excitedly anticipating her freshman year at Grimsley when a sudden brain aneurysm took her and left a giant hole in our community. She was a performer at heart: dancing, singing, and bringing music everywhere she went, and after her death, there was a new impalpable silence left in the wake.

From that sadness, and wanting to develop a lasting legacy, her Girl Scout troop and friends built a beautiful tribute: Camberly’s Garden, a place of beauty and memory for Camberly and all other children who died too soon. Amidst the flowers, swings, and beautiful musical sculptures by Jim Gallucci are pavers with tributes to children of all ages.

Since its inception, the garden has allowed families a space to memorialize their children through an engraved brick paver. Unfortunately, as time has passed, many of these pavers have become weathered and illegible.

We believe the lives of these children deserve to be remembered and plan to restore these pavers. Your support today will help ensure that these children are not forgotten. Please join us in continuing this legacy and ensuring these names and lives are never forgotten.
