2017 May Young Adult Camp in Partnership with A Little Hope, Inc. – The National Foundation for Grieving Children, Teens and Families
In Partnership with A Little Hope, Inc. – The National Foundation for Grieving Children, Teens and Families - suicide losses only
Johnsonburg, New Jersey 07825
This three-day program is designed for campers ages 19-25 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver to suicide. The weekend program includes support groups where you will receive peer-validation, confidence-building initiatives, and intentional times to honor your loved one(s).
To be eligible for this camp, the camper must be between the ages of 19-25 and experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver to death by suicide.
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.
