Camp Brave Heart is a recreational summer camp for children ages 6-17 who have experienced the loss of a love one due to death. Campers are supported in their exploration of emotional, behavioral and physical adjustments to their loss.
Children who are grieving can experience a sense of isolation as they struggle with deep and complicated feelings. Often, these children know no one else who has suffered a similar loss. Camp Brave Heart, staffed by counselors experienced in child and adolescent grief support, helps campers ages 6 to 17 discover that they are not alone. Swimming, hiking, campfires, archery, sing-a-longs, crafts and a low-level ropes course are just a few of the activities that campers enjoy. Over the course of four days packed with recreational and therapeutic activities, campers hear each other’s stories, explore their grief in a safe and understanding environment, and learn ways to help them cope with their loss.
