Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit 501(c)3 grief organization that provides a safe and fun place for youth ages 5-25 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian. The free-of-charge programs include confidence-building activities and age-based support that break the emotional isolation grief often brings.
Comfort Zone's 3-day Overnight Young Adult Camp program is designed for young adults 19-25 (18 if no longer in high school) who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian. Young adult participants join peers in a rustic camp retreat setting where discussions and activities are facilitated by a trained grief specialist.
This video is an example of what our camp programs are like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIb-yG9qYAI. Check out the available volunteer roles at http://www.comfortzonecamp.org/volunteers/roles. The first step in becoming a camp volunteer is to attend a volunteer training. Comfort Zone’s volunteer training provides education regarding childhood grief, and prepares volunteers to take part in our camp programs.
