Camp Connect, a bereavement day camp for children, is going virtual this year. Dubbed Camp Connect: Out of the Box, these online sessions by Covenant Care will help children ages 6 - 17 who have experienced the loss of a loved one, or who have a terminally ill loved one.
This camp is needed more than ever, so Covenant Care organizers are making it happen online.
Each virtual camper will receive a special box with goodies to use with the online activities to help them understand and express their grief.
Losing a loved one is especially hard for children. Before they graduate from high school, one out of every 20 children will lose a parent — and that number doesn't include those who experience the death of a brother or sister, a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, or friend. Many children simply haven’t developed the skills to cope with tragedy.
This camp is an opportunity for kids to have helpful tools needed to understand their grief and cope with their feelings, while making connections with others in similar situations. Through confidence building exercises and artistic activities, Camp Connect helps children find laughter, strength, and helps in their journey through grief. Thanks to generous community support, Camp Connect is free and open to any child in our community.
