About

ENERGETIC VOLUNTEER BUDDY'S NEEDED FOR KID'S CAMP:

A place for Grieving Children to Connect

How does one even begin to help a child process the loss of someone close to them? 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 experiences in a safe place while developing coping skills to take with them when they leave.

Crossroads Kids's offers participants a 3 day, 2 night camp held at Lake Doniphan Conference and Retreat Center in Excelsior Springs Missouri mid October. This event is sponsored by Crossroads Hospice Charitable Foundation
