Camp Courage

What is Camp Courage?

Camp Courage is a day camp for children entering third through 12th grade who have experienced the death of a loved one. Children are placed in small groups with peers their age and are led through a curriculum by specially trained volunteers and professionals from the community.

The goals of Camp Courage are to create an atmosphere of unconditional love, compassion and support to help the participants normalize feelings, explore and alleviate any sense of guilt related to the loss, learn tools for coping and have fun! We do this through a variety of evidenced-based therapeutic activities. Past examples include pet therapy, emotional intelligence skill development, yoga, recreation, sand tray therapy, mindfulness, memorialization and self-care techniques.

Our next session is scheduled for June 3 - 7, 2024.
