When a loved one dies, the whole family is affected. Each family member grieves differently. The whole family needs help.
Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camps help families come together to heal. At this weekend-long camp, every member of the family has the opportunity to participate in integrated yet separate programs. Activities are mirrored in each program, providing shared experiences and a common language to use as they continue on their lifelong grief journey after the camp ends. Hearts of Hope Camp serves family members from pre-school through grandparenthood. On-site daycare for birth to age three is provided. Camp staff are comprised of volunteers that have submitted to multiple background checks.
Individually and collectively, family members experience hope and healing by joining together with fellow travelers on the grief journey. Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp is available free of charge thanks to the generosity of our supporters. A $150 refundable family deposit is required at registration.
