What is Camp Compassion?
Camp Compassion is a free bereavement camp for youth ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of someone significant in their lives. Children and teens join for a weekend of traditional fun camp activities and participate in therapeutic grief activities.
Led by bereavement professionals and trained volunteers, campers are provided a safe environment to explore their grief, learn essential coping skills, and make friends with peers who are grieving.
We will invite parents and caregivers to join their children for the first few hours of camp on Friday to participate in activities to engage in their own healing related to grief.
We will also have a special activity on Sunday morning for parents/caregivers before checking their children out of camp.
