GriefCare for Children & Teens – Camp


Camp Reflections

Camp Reflections is a camp for grieving children in elementary and middle school. It includes activities such as music, arts & crafts, and games. Grief-related activities are conducted in small and large group settings and are led by trained facilitators.

Camp Reflections participants will have the opportunity to…

  • connect with other kids and families who have experienced the death of a loved one
  • understand grief
  • find safe, creative ways to express thoughts and feelings about their grief
  • nurture memories
  • build self-confidence and self-worth
  • take time to play, laugh, cry, and feel a sense of normalcy

The camp made me realize I am not the only one going through grief. - Camper
