Camp Good Mourning

Camp Good Mourning is an annual three-day grief camp for children and teens ages six through 18 years of age who have experienced the death of a loved one.

In order to refocus on life, children must first deal with their grief. Group sessions and activities help children and teens express feelings, learn healthy coping skills and share experiences with other children and teens in their age group who have lost a loved one.

Fun and therapeutic activities include games, swimming, arts and crafts, hiking, journaling, music therapy, trust-building exercises, and low adventure and high ropes courses. Camp concludes with a memorial service, tree planting ceremony and family picnic.
