The Mark Wandall Foundation @ Warren Willis Retreat Center (like 2019)
Mar 6 – Mar 8 all-day

Our weekend camps provides campers with the opportunity to break their isolation and realize they are not alone in a fun and healing environment.  In order to be eligible for this camp the child must be between the ages of 7-17 (18 if still in high school) and have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian.

Grief evolves with each developmental stage a child reaches, so learning to manage grief in a healthy way is important at every age.  Whether the child’s loss was ten years or three months ago, encourage them to attend – you may have an opportunity to change the course of their life.
