Children and teens who experience the death of a loved one can feel lonely, afraid and “different” from their peers. Getting a child (age 4 or older) or a teen involved in one of the Transitions GriefCare programs allows him or her to connect with others of similar age who have experienced a loss through death, understand they are not alone and learn strategies to cope with their grief. Counseling is available on an individual and group basis; for more information on group workshops and events, refer to our Support Groups and Workshops page.
Grief camp for children and teens
Camp Reflections is a weekend day camp for children and teens (ages 5 through 14) who have experienced the death of a loved one. The camp includes activities such as music, arts and crafts, and games. Grief-related activities are conducted in small and large group settings and are led by trained facilitators. Learn more.
