A fun and safe place for grieving children.

Make a difference in the life of a grieving child - become a volunteer! Our programs are free of charge and are offered to children ages 7-17.

Comfort Zone is a lot like regular camp! It’s fun. It has all the traditional parts of camp-archery, arts & crafts, canoeing, bonfires, s’mores and more! A unique part of Comfort Zone is we also do work to help kids with their grief. You don’t need to have experienced a loss or have any clinical background.

During this four-hour volunteer training session, you will meet Comfort Zone staff, campers, and volunteers who will explain what to expect at camp and how our program impacts grieving children and teens. You will receive education about childhood bereavement and we’ll give you tips on how to be successful in whichever volunteer role you are selected to fill.

There are many volunteer opportunities within Comfort Zone Camp:

- Big Buddy Mentor (matched 1:1 with a camper)

- Nurse

- Support Group Facilitator

- Photographer

- General Camp Volunteer (logistical support staff)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

- Up to 90 individuals are required for each camp session in a variety of volunteer roles.

- You must be 15 years of age to become a volunteer.

Mission Statement

Comfort zone provides grieving children with a voice, a place and a community in which to heal, grow and lead more fulfilling lives.

Description

Comfort Zone Camp is the nation's largest bereavement camp. Comfort Zone Camps are offered free of charge to children ages 7-17 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. The weekend camps are held year-round in Virginia, New Jersey, California, North Carolina and Massachusetts as well as partnership camps in several other states.

Comfort Zone Camps create an environment where grieving children can have fun and break the isolation death often brings, while learning valuable coping skills for their daily lives. All camp programs are free of charge.
