Young Adult Program

To be eligible for this Young Adult Camp, the applicant must be between the ages of 19-25 (18 if ouf of high school), and experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver to death by suicide. This program is in partnership with A Little Hope, Inc. - The National Foundation for Grieving Children, Teens and Families (suicide losses only)

 

Comfort Zone's 3-Day Overnight Young Adult Camp program is designed for young adults 19-25 (18 if no longer in high school) who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian. Young adult participants join peers in a rustic camp retreat setting where discussions and activites are facilitated by a trained grief specialist. Throughout the weekend, participants take part in conversations surrounding their loss and are able to share how grief changes as they reach life's milestones.

 

Additional program elements include team-building activities, bonfires, self-reflection, and a private memorial service held separately from the traditional overnight camp session. Specially trained volunteers, called "Mentors", are placed in the group to provide guidance, share their experience, and lend a diverse perspective. Mentors are also present to listen and build relationships. Young Adult participants emerge from the weekend with connections, coping skills, and support. 

 

Grief evolves with each developmental stage we reach, so learning to manage grief in a healthy way is important at every age. Whether your loss was 10 years ago or 3 months ago, we encourage you to attend.
