Grief Camp Donations

Children and teens often process grief very differently from adults. Our grief camps allow these youngsters a break from their everyday lives and offer them a chance to address their feelings and heal in community with other young people experiencing similar circumstances.

To help these children and teens on their grief journeys, we offer a host of fun but productive activities, including craft-making, games, singing, and play of various kinds.

If you would like to support the efforts of our trained counselors as they comfort and encourage our campers, we welcome your donations of money, goods, or sponsorship.

Among the items that we typically need are the following:
