About

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! Our certified Grief Counselors will facilitate the activities. Our "Buddy's" will partner with 2 kids each, supporting them, encouraging them, participating in activities with them, and giving them a listening ear! Age requirement of a Buddy is 18 and older. Perfect for Sororities, Fraternities, Social Workers, Youth Leaders, and those wanting to make a difference in a child's life!
Meet and Greet to see if serving as a Kid's Camp Buddy is for you! Our Kid's Camp is a place for children who have had a major life loss. Our weekend camp will be held in October, from a Friday night to Sunday afternoon. We will have approximately 30 children attending. Our interactive, therapeutic activities are designed to help the children process their grief, connect with others who have also had a loss, and create a safe place for them to share. Each "Buddy" will partner with 2 children. Indoor and outdoor activities planned at beautiful Lake cabin/camping site. This evening is a meet and greet and open question and answer session to find out if being a Kid's Camp Buddy is for you! All training, lodging and food costs covered by Crossroads Hospice Charitable Foundation
