** This camp was made possible by a generous donation from the LivWel Group in memory of Skip Lester **

 

Our weekend camps provides campers with the opportunity to break their isolation and realize they are not alone in a fun and healing environment. To be eligible for this camp, the child must be between the ages of 7-17 (18 if still in high school), and experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian.

Grief evolves with each developmental stage a child reaches, so learning to manage grief in a healthy way is important at every age. Whether the child’s loss was ten years or three months ago, encourage them to attend - you may have an opportunity to change the course of their life.

 

To Register a Child for Camp:

  • Create or update your camper's CZC account.

    • New Campers: Create a "My Comfort Zone" account by clicking "Register Now" at the top of this page. Complete the application questions - camper(s) will be automatically added to their region's Registration List.

    • Returning Campers: Log into your "My Comfort Zone" account.  Update your camper's profile, then add camper(s) to your region's Registration List.

  • A Comfort Zone Camp representative will contact you when a space becomes available at an upcoming camp.  You will receive a questionnaire via email regarding your child's loss history, current grief expression, and his/her personality and interests.

  • Once the questionnaire has been completed, a CZC staff member will contact you to discuss your camper's acceptance.

If you have additional questions about the camp dates, the registration process, or have trouble logging into your account, feel free to contact us at [email protected].
