Child Grief Support Programs
The type of support that children receive during their bereavement can impact their health, social relationships and future success in school. Our programs are designed to empower children to transform grief from a painful experience into one of deep learning and personal growth.
Children's Support Group (children 5-13)
This support group is ideal for children who have experienced a loss due to death. The first and most important lesson will be that they are not alone. Over eight 1 1/2 hour sessions, children are encouraged to process their grief through a variety of friendship-building and grief-related activities.
Day Camps (Children 5-12)
Our day camps are an excellent opportunity for bereaved children to learn how to better support themselves and their peers through the challenging rite of passage that comes with grief. Through games, crafts and commemorating activities children strengthen resiliency skills needed to navigate future losses and life transitions.
This four-day retreat is ideal for children ages 7 to 13 who have participated in a loss support program and would like four days of fun, sharing and celebration of the values, and insight that working through a loss gifts us with. This camp is designed and supervised by bereaved youths from our Leadership Training Program.
There are no fees for our programs but pre-registration is required.
