Children's Bereavement Network
Posted By: Julie Kuras (June 2, 2016)
This camp is a free camp for all children that has lost a loved one. My three grandchildren attended this camp two years ago in July of 2014. These children had lost their mom in January 2014 to cancer. She was thirty-eight years old. We heard about this camp through a counselor that the children were seeing after their mother's death.
I highly recommend this camp for any child that has lost a loved one. My grandchildren came home from this camp more relaxed and stronger children. They did many activities and crafts. Each one has a bear made from a piece of their mom's clothing. Something they still cherish.
The money would help cover the cost of two children, two team buddies, one leader, room, food, materials and crafts.
This is the second year my granddaughter will be attending camp as a team buddy for other children.
She loves this camp.
