Camp Good Grief

Bereavement Camp for Kids

Camp Good Grief is a complimentary day camp for children and teens ages 5 to 18 who have experienced the loss of a parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or anyone who has been important in their life.

Losing a loved one is difficult at any age, but it is especially hard on a child. Camp Good Grief helps children who are struggling with the difficult emotions of a loss.  At camp, children are able to express themselves and meet others their age who are dealing with a similar kind of loss.

Date of Camp: Saturday, September 28, 2019

Camp includes confidence building programs and age-based support that helps kids to break the isolation that grief often brings. At camp, children find a place where they have a voice and can start to heal in a safe and fun environment.

One of the highlights of the camp is a memorial service held at the end of camp when campers present special tributes dedicated to their loved ones. Families are invited.
