May 30th – Virtual Camp for Loss During COVID-19
May 30 @ 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Age Range: 13-25

When: Saturday, May 30, 2020 @ 12pm – 2:30pm EST (9am – 11:30am PST)

Comfort Zone recognizes that many families are grieving the loss of a loved one from and during the COVID-19 pandemic. These losses are especially hard for families who are forced to grieve alone and do not have the opportunity to formally say goodbye to their loved ones.

In an effort to support these families, Comfort Zone is offering a virtual COVID-19 camp for youth ages 13-25 on Saturday, May 30th from 12pm – 2:30pm EST (9am – 11:30am PST). There will also be a parent/guardian program taking place simultaneously for those whose child(ren) are participating in the virtual camp.

These resources are offered at no cost to families and are open to anyone grieving the death of a close loved one (parent/guardian, sibling, grandparent, or friend) who died as a result of or during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our goal is to help families break their isolation, express their feelings, and gain coping skills to help navigate through this trying time.

June 13th – 14th – 2 Day Virtual Camp Program
Jun 13 @ 12:00 pm – Jun 14 @ 2:30 pm

Who’s ready for camp?!  We are here at CZC!

Comfort Zone is proud to offer a 2-Day Virtual Camp on Saturday, June 13th & Sunday, June 14th.  It will be from 12pm – 2:30pm EST (9am – 11:30am PST) each day and is for youth ages 7-25.

This camp is for campers who have already signed up for an in-person 2020 program but did not attend this year due to the impact of COVID-19.  It will focus on both fun activities and tools that can be used to cope with the loss of a loved one as well as the effects of the pandemic.

Although we may not be together in person, we can still connect to the camp “bubble” and our CZC community.

This program is offered at no cost to families, and space is limited!

To register and for additional information, email one of our Youth and Family Coordinators:
