Experience Camps for Grieving Children

Experience Camps for Grieving Children

Children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver are the beneficiaries of a fundraiser to support Experience Camps — a national non-profit organization that providesfree, one-week camps for grieving children. At Experience Camps, along with swimming, arts and crafts, and team sports, the kids take part in activities including sharing circles where they are encouraged to talk about their grief. Campers have the opportunity to meet and connect with kids who are going through similar challenges, while getting all of the benefits of the traditional summer camp experience. Experience Camps help children know they are not alone, and form loving bonds that endure long beyond the week of camp.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 1.5 million children are living in a single-family household because of the death of one parent. Grieving children are at higher risk than their non-grieving peers for depression, anxiety, poor school attendance or dropping out, isolation, behavior problems, lowered academic achievement, drug and/or alcohol abuse, incarceration or suicide.Experience Camps Transforms the Lives of Grieving Children.

The benefit will be held Wednesday, May 15, 2019 (6:30 – 9:30 PM); Tickets can be purchased here. 

Experience Camps are free one-week camps for boys and girls who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver.  It’s a place where kids can laugh, cry, play, create, remember the person who died, or forget the grief that weighs them down.  It’s a place where they can feel “normal”, because everyone there has been through something similar and understands what it’s like to lose someone important to them. In 2019, Experience Camps will have more than 700 campers at camps in Maine, California, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Michigan. For more information about Experience Camps, visit Follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
