Our weekend camps provide children 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 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.
