About Camp Comfort
Dear Parent or Guardian,
While issues of grief and loss are hard for anyone to handle, they can be especially confusing and painful for children. We invite your child to take part in what could be a positive, healing experience. Sharing with other children who are in similar situations and knowing that they are not alone can be very helpful. Children often carry a heavy burden when someone they love dies. Our hope is that a Camp Comfort weekend will assist your child in understanding their loss. We cannot take your child’s grief away. We will, however, give him or her an opportunity to learn some coping tools, develop a better understanding of their grief, and help them preserve positive memories of their loved one.
–With hope for healing,
The Camp Comfort Staff
