Program coming to Florida
Comfort Zone Camp Partners with The Mark Wandall Foundation
Free Three-Day Family Bereavement Program
April 21-23, 2017
Apopka, FL 32703
A specialized program for children and teens who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or guardian.
One weekend of healing can begin a lifetime of change. This three-day program is designed to:
- Break the isolation children often feel after a death
- Introduce peers who can personally relate to their loss
- Provide mentorship and professional therapeutic services
- Identify healthy coping skills for managing grief
In addition to traditional camp activities, campers and their mentors attend age-based support groups where they can talk about their experiences and receive support and validation from peers.
You are not alone. Parents or guardians may also participate in a one-day program specific to parents/guardians. They are given the opportunity to share their experiences among peers who can relate to their loss, receive support, and learn how they can best support their children's efforts to manage their grief in healthy ways.
Children ages 7-17 (18 if still in high school) and their parent or guardian. Loss must have occurred a minimum of three months prior to program. Registration is required. Contact Intake Coordinator Ally Singer at [email protected] to register.
All services are 100% free of charge. Download the PDF flyer and please refer any families you believe can benefit from this program.
