Camp Conquer, grief camp for children

Camp Conquer offers a safe and nurturing environment for children 8-14 who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Through a 3 day program, Camp Conquer offers children the ability to understand their grief and learn they are not alone. They often find that there are many children experiencing similar situations and feelings.

Our goal is to offer an environment that encourages children to recognize their grief and develop healthy ways to express their feelings. Camp Conquer offers children a time and place to understand that grief is a journey and there are others on the same path. Our counselors and trained volunteers encourage each child who may be struggling with their loss to cope with their grief through their daily lives.

We offer an approach that combines play and work interactions throughout the weekend, with a goal of having each child participate in activities that are not only fun but offer a way for them to recognize their grief and have a safe outlet for healing and expression.

The weekend activities include:
• crafts
• music
• team building
• canoeing
• rope courses
• swimming
• and more!

The weekend wraps up with a final event filled with fun and laughter. All families are invited to share in the Celebration of Life ceremony to honor our loved ones.
