Bereavement Camps

Camp I Believe LogoCamp I Believe is a FREE children’s bereavement camp funded by Kindred Hospice Foundation that provides support to grieving children and families across the country, with an emphasis being placed on strong clinical programming and community engagement. Camp activities and programming focus on providing campers with opportunity to express feelings and tell their story in a safe environment. Although all of the campers have been identified as grieving, not all of the programming is focused on grief and loss. Many of the children who come to camp attend for the opportunity to have fun and to feel “normal” again. All activities, whether directly or indirectly, help campers to establish a sense of community and provide teambuilding opportunities; activities place an emphasis on personal growth through creative expression and through establishing positive relationships with peers.
