About

Vision Statement: We envision a community that honors the validity of child and family grief by facilitating the healing process.

Crossroads Kids is a three-day, two night camp held at Lake Doniphan Conference and Retreat Center in Excelsior Springs, MO. By incorporating therapeutic activities into a fun camping experience, Crossroads Kids allows children to connect with peers who are also experiencing grief. It is a time for attendees to share their experience in a safe place while developing coping skills to take with them when they leave.

In order to achieve our vision, we maintain a 1:2 ratio of staff to campers to ensure ample supervision and support. All therapeutic groups are overseen by credentialed , masters's level social work and psychology staff.

How can you help as a Buddy? We ask that our volunteers be as committed to our mission and our campers as we are. For more information please contact Sandy Doolittle or Veronica Evans at 913-850-7500 or email volunteerKAN@crossroadshospice.com.

Volunteers must complete a mandatory Saturday training, TB Test and background and finger print test. CPR Certification required.
