Grief Camps

Camp Good Grief/Bravery is a free camp for children ages 5 to 17 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.  Founded in 2005, Camp Good Grief/Bravery 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 dealing with similar situations.

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.
