2019 November VA Camp

Camp Name :


Age Range :


When Friday, November 8, 2019 - 4:30pm
Location: Camp Hanover
Mechanicsville, Virginia 23111

This three day program is a strength-based, child-focused model, which includes age-based support groups facilitated by trained grief specialists. The program includes icebreakers, confidence-building activities and other activities designed to facilitate trust, expression, and interaction among them.

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 primary caregiver.

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:

  1. Create a My Comfort Zone account by clicking Register Now at the top of this page. Complete the application questions and select which campers to add to the regional registration list. 
  2. A Comfort Zone Camp representative will contact you when a space becomes available at an upcoming camp to schedule a phone interview. The interview includes a discussion regarding your child's loss history, current grief expression, and his/her personality and interests.
  3. Once the interview is complete, a CZC staff member will contact you to discuss your campers acceptance.
